Template:Expand Portuguese Template:Infobox religious building Igreja da Madalena is a church in Portugal. It is classified as a National Monument.


The Magdalene Church that currently exists is the result of several reconstructions. The original structure was erected in 1150 or 1164, by order of D. Afonso Henriques. In 1363, a fire completely destroyed the church, and Ferdinand I of Portugal had it rebuilt. In 1600 the church was partially destroyed by a cyclone. In 1755 the church was demolished by the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake. In 1783 Queen Maria I of Portugal had to rebuild the church again. In 1833, the church underwent some changes.
