Saint Antony was patron and honorary colonel-in-chief of the local regiment and, according to tradition, the statue that's inside the church accompanied it on various campaigns during the Peninsular War (1807-11).
Near the altar is the grave of Hugh Beatty, an Irish colonel who commanded the Lagos regiment during the 17th-century wars with Spain. He died in 1709 and his motto was "non vi sed arte" (not with force but with skill).
