Long Description:
"O portal sul, em largo arco abatido, é sobrepujado por dois medalhões - possivelmente com os bustos de D. João III e D. Catarina - de quatro molduras concêntricas, unidas por arco conopial e terminadas por pequenas radiais cogulhadas. A porta geminada, separada por coluna torsa capitelizada, é rematada por arcos de volta perfeita acairelados. O portal é delimitado por duas finas pilastras."
