São Sebastião da Pedreira Church 1608













The church, preceded by double staircase, has a facade flanked by two bell towers and is unmitigated by a double triangular pediment. Inside, a ship, there are a profusion of carvings and paintings that decorate the walls.
The parish church of São Sebastião da Pedreira was not affected by the earthquake that shook Lisbon in 1755, why in your office should be documentation of the still life of the church, and possibly the bodies attached to them. However, except for the record books of the parish, nothing else exists.
