Of Churches and Brandy

Blessed with the curse of almost preternatural durability, Igreja de São Domingos has survived fires, earthquakes, and inquisitions picking up its share of battle scars along the way. The high altar, with red marble columns supporting the sculptural composition of the Holy Trinity is well worthy of note as is the sacristy, which for many years held the remains of King Afonso III, until they were moved to Alcobaça. If all this talk of religious history has you feeling thirsty, stop by the popular hole-in-the-wall bar almost immediately in front of the church for a glass of ginginha, a local syrupy cherry brandy liqueur.
