There is still the altar cloth in the Sacristy which is over hundred years old embroidered with colourful threads and golden strings (galões in Portuguese) in the middle of which there is an embroidered picture of the Immaculate Virgin Mary whose face, joint-palms and feet are of carved ivory. A marvellous design and a peace of art.
The Sacristy altar, where another new Crucifix is fixed and a new unique and original wooden statue of St. Anthony who has "looped" the snake around his monastic waist cord.
