Half way (20 kms) between Montemor-o-Novo and Alcácer do Sal, São Cristóvão is a village set in the immensity of the plain and on the route to the beaches. The birth of this village has its origin intimately linked to a legend; it attributes to St Christopher the choice of the location of the church of which the people would choose him to be the patron saint and unifying symbol of their faith.
|Overview of S. Cristóvão|
The narrow valley of the S. Cristovão River is home to various “monuments” of natural architecture.
To find these places, it is best to make use of the existing pedestrian or mountain-bike routes and, with the help of the explanatory leaflets, discover the beauties of the parish area.
