Convento de Santo António do Varatojo

Torres Vedras, Varatojo - Torres Vedras

Information

Dated from the late fifteenth century, this is a national monument wich has had additions over the centuries.

From the original monument it only preserves the façade and the door, characteristic of the reign of Afonso V.

Its walls are covered with tiles of the eighteenth century.

It also has several niches for confessionals, whose tiles are composed of scenes from the confession. The side altars are coated with baroque carvings and have marble stools.

The chapel of the Convent is the richest area of the church and presents a simple barrel-vaulted ceiling lined with eighteenth century tiles depicting scenes from the life of Saint Anthony, framed by wide moldings.

It also has other very curious assets that justify a long visit to the site.
