Photographer's Note

St. John the Baptist Church in Obidos was founded by the Holy Queen, Isabel of Aragon, in the thirteenth century and was initially dedicated to St. Vincent.

The Brotherhood of the Holy Spirit based in this church, close to the leprosarium (to house patients suffering from leprosy), was also founded by the same monarch.

Consisting of a single nave, it now serves as the parish museum.
