Miguel Torga (Diário, 1980) wrote that “we are part of a large magical retable where the figures move without changing the composition”. The rostrum of this retable, framed by archivolts emphasising their scenographic dimension, bears a number of sculptural works of the crowning of the Virgin Mary, full of expressiveness and could result from possible changes to the original structure. The lack of erudite references together with highlights of local devotions gives this retable plastic force.
