Religious building of uncertain origin, but already existing at the end of the 16th century. 
It underwent extensive remodeling at the beginning of the 18th century, which introduced the large side altars that exist today and the tile panels with passages from the life of São Bento. It is a church with a longitudinal plan consisting of a single nave with a rectangular plan, preceded by a galilee. The main chapel has a domed roof with traces of wall paintings and elevations partially lined with tiles.
