São Pedro Church

Get to know Óbidos religious heritage

Devoted to the apostle S.Pedro and shaken by the 1755 earthquake, São Pedro church facade still retains some traces of the ancient Gothic portal.

Inside, eighteenth-century images referring Santa Barbara, S.Pedro and S.Paulo deserve a special attention.

The presbytery dome that holds a golden carved altarpiece with a painting from João Costa (Óbidos artist), is one of the reasons to visit São Pedro Church.

The work presents S.Pedro receiving the keys to heaven.

Quietly exploring the rich history content of this church we can encounter the famous Josefa de Óbidos’ tomb.

The talented artist was buried here as her own request was to be close to her mystic godmother, Nossa Senhora do Rosário.
