Saint Anthony Church: Saint Anthony's birthplace

It is thought to have been modelled on the palaces of Venice, although the two upper floors have exuberant arched windows characteristic of the Portuguese Manueline style.

Its interior is not usually open to the public, except when it hosts occasional special exhibitions. It is currently in the process of turning into the home of the Saramago Foundation, a space dedicated to the Nobel Prize-winning Portuguese writer. It will host special literary events and contain the author’s library.

There are tourist shops in the vicinity as well as cheap restaurants known for their traditional grilled fish dishes.
