[EN] Santa Maria do Olival Church

Gothic temple from the mid 13th century built on the site of a former temple built by D. Gualdim Pais.

The Pantheon of the Masters of the Templars was the headquarters of the nullius diocesis with jurisdiction over the churches of the Discoveries. The interesting spatial structure with three naves served as a model for the São João Baptista church and other churches from the end of the Portuguese gothic period.

Outside, the magnificent rose window is noteworthy, the lookout tower converted into a bell tower and the 16th century loggia; inside, the tombstone of Gualdim Pais, the tomb of D. Diogo Pinheiro and the images of Our Lady of Milk and the Holy Mothers.

This Gothic church (13th century) was built as a burial ground for the Templar Knights. Gualdim Pais, the founder of the city, was buried in the church and his original tomb slab, dated from 1195 and bearing a gothic inscription, is still preserved inside.
