The church of Santa Maria (Igreja de Santa Maria de Lagos) was originally constructed in 1498 and was once known as the Church of Mercy (Igreja da Misericórdia). It wasn't until later in the 16th and 17th centuries, after much of the original church was destroyed by the earthquake of 1755, that a parish church was established and dedicated to St. Mary (Santa Maria).

The church of Santa Maria (Igreja de Santa Maria de Lagos) was originally constructed in 1498 and was once known as the Church of Mercy (Igreja da Misericórdia).

The building as it stands today is a fine example of neoclassical architecture composed of a single nave with three side chapels and a sacristy attached to the left side of the facade. The front of the building has a very symmetrical composition while the inside is decoratively enriched with altarpieces from the second half of the 18 century.
