Details of the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Conceição in Tomar

I didn’t have the opportunity to visit the interior of the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Conceição in Tomar, because it was closed, but I took some pictures outside and here you can see some architectural details of the chapel outside. This place of worship is also known in English as Chapel of Our Lady of The Conception. The origin of the Portuguese word Conceição seems to be Concepção, therefore Conception in English.
