Built in 1596 this church originally belonged to the Convent of Our Lady of Conception and Martyrs, and only in 1863 it became Sacavém’s parish church, when it had its original patron changed to Our Lady of Purification. It is a soberly designed mannerist building with a lateral entrance and a bell tower, which features a niche with an image of the Virgin Mary. In the church’s interior one can see the images of Saint Michael and of Our Lady of Conception in the side altars, and a baptismal font, which according to legend was the dome of an ancient moorish fortification turned upside down.
