The Church of São João  Batista is a small building, parallel to the road, with a rectangular plan, in stone masonry plastered and whitewashed, with its architectural and decorative elements in relief in stonework. It is not known the exact date of its construction, reason why the historians point to the XVI and XVII centuries. In 1895 the church was rebuilt and having added the current front tower with the steeple, of American influence.
