Its origins go back to the foundation of Caldas da Rainha, throughout the fifteenth-century passage to the sixteenth century, having undergone refurbishment works in the eighteenth century, under the reforms promoted by King João V.

There, we can watch a combination of religion and pottery art, so typical of Caldas da Rainha, the blue interior coating and white tiles, are artworks that deserve to be contemplated for they tell the tales of St. Sebastian’s life.
