Located near the Riverside Market, the Church of Our Lady of the Waves, or the Seafarers, also called the Church of San Pedro Gonçalves Telmo, dates back to the reign of King Manuel I of Portugal (late 15th, early 16th century) and was probably built by local fisherman and sailors. It suffered damage following the earthquake in 1755 and features an image of St. Pedro Gonçalves Telmo, patron of men of the sea, in its chancel.
