  • Financiada por doações, os Jesuitas construiram esta igreja no ano de 1577. Após expulsão dos Jesuitas, a igreja passou por diferentes entidades, acabando hoje por ser propriedade de Seminário Maior. O nome "Grilos", advém do facto de os Frades Descalços de Santo Agostinho, que também chegaram a ser proprietários do imóvel, terem estado instalados inicialmente em Lisboa, no sítio do Grilo.
  • Vistas preciosas y una iglesia tremenda
