Constância - Portugal

Today my mailbox was empty and yesterday I've only received this card sent by Ninocas, from Constância, a portuguese town in Santarém district. 

The Misericórdia (Mercy) Church is a small Mannerist church built in the 17th century. The interior of the temple is completely covered with tiles panels.
Between 1811 and 1822 was the main church of Constância, as the seat of the parish, the temple of Saint Julian, was destroyed during the Napoleonic wars. Between 1941 and 1960 this temple was closed to worship because of flood damages.
