Long Description:
"Na fachada conserva-se o pórtico original, demarcado por duas elegantes e ornadas pilastras terminadas em agulhas. O lintel de arco abatido assenta em colunelos entrelaçados, formando edícula central ladeada por anjos alados, seguidos de armas reais. Um arco trilobado, com o lóbulo central de forma conopial e derivações radiantes, termina esta composição. No século XVIII juntam-se à fachada, conferindo-lhe um efeito magnífico, elementos barrocos de negro basalto, contrastando fortemente com o branco da pedra calcária."
