In the Hieronymites Monastery, the Igreja Santa Maria has a south door with an abundance of statues, including one of Henry the Navigator. The interior is outstanding, in particular the vault, which surprisingly withstood the 1755 earthquake, and the slender architectural lines of the pillars in the nave. Various styles can be seen in the church: Baroque (transept), Classical (choir) and neo-Manueline (the tombs of Vasco de Gama and Camões).
