Regarding Alportel, the first historical reference dates from 1518, when he was Grand Master of the Order of Santiago, D.

Jorge, illegitimate son of King D.

João II.

São Brás was, then, a Chapel attached to the Church of Santa Maria de Faro.

Still in the reign of D.

João II, S.

Brás de Alportel passed to the direct domain of the Crown, entering the heritage of Casa das Rainhas, because King D.

Afonso III did not confirm the donation of the locality to the Order of Santiago, which had made by D.

Sancho II.

The church of São Brás probably dates back to the 15th century.

It was a temple with a single nave, as it was a 'cured' chapel attached to Faro.

After the elevation of the locality to the parish, in the middle of the XVI century, the reconstruction works of the temple soon started.

The responsibility for building the new temple rested with the local population, which was then six hundred people.

The church was practically completed in 1565.

In 1587 the Bishop of the Algarve, D.

Jerónimo Barreto, ordered the altarpiece in the chancel to be gilded and painted.

The 1755 earthquake damaged the temple, namely the ousia that was overthrown, but the prior immediately ordered its reconstruction.

Regarding the carving, only an eighteenth century altarpiece survived from the first chapel on the side of the epistle, next to the cruise.

Of great value is the sculptural heritage, composed of about twenty images from the 17th to the 19th centuries, of which the image of S.

Libório from the 18th century stands out.

In São Brás de Alportel there is also an Ethnographic Museum of the Algarve Costume, which is installed in the António Bentes house.

São Brás de Alportel is a Portuguese village in the district of Faro, region and sub-region of the Algarve, with about 4 700 inhabitants.

[1] It is the seat of a municipality with an area of ​​153.37 ksqm [2] and 10 662 inhabitants (2011), [3] [4] being one of the six municipalities in Portugal with a single parish, [5] corresponding to the entire territory of the county.

It is limited to the north and east by the municipality of Tavira, to the southeast by Olhão, to the south by Faro and to the west by Loulé.

It belongs to the Cittaslow Cities network.

[6] When the headquarters of the Algarve bishopric of Silves (Portugal) were transferred to Faro, the need arose to build a new summer residence for the highest members of the clergy of the diocese.

The chosen location was São Brás de Alportel, with the bishops Simão da Gama and D.

António Pereira da Silva responsible for most of the works.

Although the Episcopal Palace is only one floor, it was a noble building with a private chapel, spacious rooms, interior courtyard, exterior gallery, gardens with pond, fountains and ponds, wooded and flowering avenues, a loft and orchard.

Currently, the building is very uncharacteristic.

In São Brás de Alportel there is also an Ethnographic Museum of the Algarve Costume, which is installed in the António Bentes house.
