Long Description:
This church is dedicated to São Silvestre and it was built during the 17th Century (unknown year). Its inside is decorated with blue tiles from the 17th Century. The baptism recipient is a bit older, dated from the 16th Century.

I was told about the existence of a legend involving its destruction with the huge earthquake of 1755 and later reconstruction, but I couldn't find the story.
