Two chapels and a church in Tomar

The photos in this topic relate to two different chapels and one church, all located in different areas of Tomar in Portugal. The first photo I believe to be a very small chapel located midway that huge flight of stairs that leads to the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Piedade. Despite my investigation I haven’t found the name of this small place of worship yet. The second photo is the main entrance to Misericordia church at Avenida Cândido Madureira and the third one is Santa Iria Chapel, which is located at Rua de Santa Iria, right next door to a coffee shop of the same name.
