Santarem is a relatively small popular city, considered the Gothic capital of Portugal. It is famous for its bullfighting and the largest farming show in the country. A measured and welcoming atmosphere reigns here, and the local flavor is complemented by historical, cultural and entertainment attractions that can be seen if you watch Santarem's webcams online. The local lands have been inhabited since ancient times. According to legend, the city was named after the Holy Martyr Irene. After the conquest by Henriquez, Santarem became the largest center of the Portuguese rulers. It was here that the royal residence and the capital of the empire were located. Many natural disasters and battles significantly weakened the importance of the city for the monarchs, who were forced to leave Santarem, devoid of many important cultural and architectural monuments.

Some of the old buildings have survived to this day.

One of them is the Cathedral, which is also known as the Seminary Church. The building is clad in baroque facades and has the status of a functioning temple. The interior decoration of the building amazes with its exquisite stone and gold inlays, as well as miraculously survived frescoes. Adjacent to the cathedral is the Diocese Museum, which contains the cult works of the Santarem diocese that have survived to this day, starting from the XII century. The church of Graça, built in the 14th century, is endowed with an amazing Gothic appearance. It is one of the main attractions of the city with its snow-white facades with lacy stone carvings, traditional roses and floral ornaments. You should definitely visit another ancient temple of Santarem - the Church of St. Mary de Marville, erected in the XII century instead of the mosque that once stood here. The temple acquired its present appearance in the 16th century during a grandiose reconstruction at the initiative of the Indian Viceroy. Next to the church is the Cabasa tower. This is all that remains of the old fortress. The tower houses a clock and a bell that counts down every hour. You can get a closer look at the cultural life of Santarem by visiting the house-museum, founded in the former estate of Prime Minister Jose Relvas, who has collected a rich collection of works of art. The patron bequeathed all his treasures to the city. The Figueiros fountain complex has an unusual and even mystical atmosphere. The building was erected in the early Gothic style near the road between Santarem and the Atamarma valley. The composition is represented by a stone canopy with arches and sharp teeth, repeating the merlons of the city wall.
