D. Manuel I
 mandou edificar a igreja, dedicada a Santo André, da primitiva construção desse templo pouco resta e da última grande reconstrução efectuada em 1909 foi-nos deixada a talha barroca setecentista, a pia baptismal do séc. XVI e as seis gárgulas com formas de animais que guarnecem os flancos do templo.
Santo André foi um apóstolo de Jesus Cristo, padroeiro de muitas igrejas em Portugal.

D. Manuel I ordered the construction of this church, dedicated to St. Andrew. Only a small part of this church comes from the original construction and from the last major reconstruction, carried out in 1909, were left the eighteenth-century baroque carving, the font of the sixteenth-century and the six gargoyles (with animals forms) that line the sides of this temple.
St. Andrew was an apostle of Jesus Christ and a patron saint of many churches in Portugal.


Pelourinho foi construído em 1514, é por isso um monumento quinhentista. No topo sobressaem as armas dos D. Abades de Alcobaça e a esfera dos descobrimentos.


The Pillory was built is 1514 and is therefore a sixteenth-century monument. At the top it is possible to see the arms of the Abbots of Alcobaça, as well as the sphere of discoveries.
