Church of Jesus

Recommended
Built of Arrabida marble in 1491, it was designed by Boytac. This is the first example of Manueline art. The walls are partly covered in azulejos from the 17C. The Museu de Setúbal is set up in the convent. The galleries on the upper floor contain a significant collection of early Portuguese art (15C-16C). All these paintings are by an unknown artist referred to as the "Master of the retable at Setúbal ".
