The Church of Mercy of Moncarapacho

The construction of the early Church of Mercy dates back to the XVI century and suffered, however, profound works of restoration in the following centuries, so it deserves a long visit. This temple has a longitudinal plant composed of a single nave and chancel and houses a mannerist altarpiece, with a set of six paintings, depicting scenes of Christ's life, painted around the year 1600 and attributed to the Master of Tavira Boaventura de Reis.
It is considered the mannerist retable set of most importance of the beginning of the XVII century.
