Geocache Description:

Igreja Matriz de S. Martinho de Estoi

Igreja Matriz de S. Martinho de Estoi

A igreja primitiva de São Martinho, de origem medieval, foi construída pelo povo da aldeia de Estoi, tendo sido alterada no séc. XVI, quando Estoi passou a ser sede de freguesia. Com estas alterações o templo passou a contar com três naves e quatro tramos, sem um transepto, apresentando uma cobertura única em madeira para todas as naves.

Após o terramoto de 1755, a igreja teve de ser reconstruída, por ordem de D. Francisco Gomes de Avelar, Bispo do Algarve, com a orientação do arquitecto italiano Francisco Xavier Fabri, que respeitou as linhas pré-existentes, introduzindo contudo uma fachada neoclássica.
