Long Description:
This chapel is dedicated to São João Evangelista and it was originally built in 1532 by Cosmo Bernardes de Macedo, owner of the nearby farm de Martim Afonso.

Nas paredes laterais do altar – mor, são de realçar dois painéis de azulejos azuis e brancos do século XVIII, nos quais figuram cenas da Senhora com o Menino ao colo."
