This fourteenth century church was under the care of a sisterhood of women called the Servas de Nossa Senhora, the same sisterhood that set up a convent in 1598, whose first stone was laid in 1604, under the patronage of the Duke of Bragança, D. Teodósio II. The first nuns took their vows in 1645, having come from Convento das Chagas de Vila Viçosa.
