This is a chapel in the park right next to the castle. It is supposedly a place where the first king of Portugal, Afonso Henriques got baptized. Inside is basically empty, but there is a possibility to purchase an immersive experience of a battle of Campo de São Mamedes, the guy selling it said the experience lasts 8 minutes and it is 6 euros.

This is a small chapel near the castle walls. It is worth a brief look as it is historic and has a lovely setting in a park.

Our tour did take us inside of the small, very simple little chapel, where it is believed that the first king of Portugal, Alfonso Henriques, was baptized. The floor is covered with the funerary slabs of those who were buried there (well-worn by time).

This little chapel is so charming. It is down below the castle and works well with it to create a whole landscape of loveliness. Inside is stark but noble. Come and take a photo like we did.

You can’t help but see this small, simple Romanesque church that sits between the castle and palace. Consecrated in 1239, it is dedicated to Saint Michael. Legend says that inside is the baptismal font where Afonso I, the first king of Portugal, was baptized (he was born next door in the castle). The floor of the church is covered with funerary slabs for those buried under the church. Perhaps knights that died protecting the castle? Another fascinating piece of Portugal history!

Now this is a little gem. I discovered it quite by accident walking downhill from the castle to the adjacent Braganza Palace. It's a delightful little chapel and was supposedly where the first Kung of Portugal, Alfonso Henriques I was baptised.
Wheat I loved most was the simplicity of it, so unostentatious despite it once being a royal chapel. Have a good look at the floor and you can see the old tombstones and plaques worn away by eons of time.

This is a very old church. There’s almost nothing inside it. But it’s supposed to be considered a royal church as the 1st king of Portugal had some dealings with this particular church.

This is a small, but royal, church belonged to the nearby castle. It is a very nice Romanesque style church, quite small, and quite dark. Not that much to see inside, but the floor is covered with tombstones, and it has a very nice atmosphere (if not too many tourists are inside).

Rahter Asian-style - take a picture, venture inside and then move on. Still, spend some time inside, the floorstones are very interesting to explore.
