As you cross the Village Door you must look up. There is a 17th century balcony with a beautiful panel made with white tiles painted in blue (called azulejos in Portuguese); those tiles date from the 18th century. And the balcony's ceiling has frescos with a flowered pattern. This place is an Oratory - Oratório Nossa Senhora da Piedade. Here you can also admire some typical lamps made in iron.
