The region of Santarém has been inhabited since pre-historic times, first by the Lusitani people, and
then by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, Moors and Portuguese Christians.
Santarém has a picturesque city centre with several monuments, including the largest and most varied
ensemble of gothic churches in Portugal. These include fine examples of transitional Romanesque–
Gothic, mendicant (plain style derived from the mendicant orders) and late (flamboyant) Gothic. In
addition, the city has nice examples of Manueline, Renaissance, Mannerist and Baroque architecture.
»Old Castle of Santarém (Porta do Sol): Located on a high slope over the Tagus river and the
surrounding landscape, the site of the old castle of Santarém is now a nice garden that offers
spectacular views. Part of the walls and towers of the castle are still preserved.
»Cabaças Tower (Torre das Cabaças): Ancient defensive tower of the mediaeval wall of the city.
Houses the Time Museum with an exhibition about the measurement of time through the ages.
»Convent of Saint Claire (Convento de Santa Clara): 13th-century feminine convent. Good example of
Portuguese mendicant Gothic style.
»Convent of Saint Francis (Convento de São Francisco): Another 13th-century convent in medicant
style. Has a nice Gothic cloister. King Ferdinand I was buried here.
»Church of the Grace (Igreja da Graça): Built between the 14th and 15th centuries in a mix of
mendicant and flamboyant Gothic styles. Has a magnificent main portal and rose window (unique in the
world, carved out of a single stone) that shows the influence of the Monastery of Batalha. The first
governor of Ceuta Pedro de Meneses (died 1437) and his wife are buried here in a magnificent Gothic
tomb with their recumbent figures holding each other's hands. Pedro Álvares Cabral, discoverer of
Brazil, and his wife are buried under a simple slab near the main chapel.
»Church of Marvila (Igreja de Marvila): This 16th-century church has nice portal and main chapel in
Manueline style. The nave and pulpit are in early Renaissance style. The interior walls are covered with
17th-century-multicoloured tiles with geometric patterns. It has one of the most outstanding tile-based
interior decorations in Portugal.
»Cathedral of Santarém (Sé-Catedral): Built in the 17th century in mannerist style as the Jesuit church
of the city, it became the Seminary church after the Jesuits were expelled from Portugal in the mid-18th century.The interior decoration is very rich, with altarpieces from various periods and styles (Mannerism and Baroque) and a ceiling with an illusionist painting. Since the 1970 s it is the Cathedral of Santarém. The site of the church and seminary was previously occupied by the medieval royal palace of Santarém.
