Distinctive Contemporary Churches

I know that Portugal has many fine old churches, which I plan to visit, but can you tell me of any wonderful contemporary churches in the Lisbon area? I will also be visiting Evora, Sinrta, Peniche, Obidios, Nazare and Alcobaca. Thank you for any suggestions.

I was born in Caldas da Rainha, near Obidos and Peniche and I know those areas quite well.

If you're looking for some contemporary churches in Peniche and Obidos I must warn you it will be a difficult task. Most churches are medieval or from the baroque period or from late 18th-19th centuries when located in towns. Outside Peniche or Obidos you may find some new churches in the small villages that surround these areas. In the area of Peniche you will find some small villages - whose parishes have enlarged within the years, and consequently needed bigger churches - with more recently built churches. It is best to ask in local tourism offices for directions.

hope you have a nice journey here
