Many names for a single church -"Convento de Nossa Senhora de Jesus do Sítio", "Igreja do Hospital" or "Igreja de Cristo" mean the same - a convent from the final of the 17Th century, located in the centre of the city, near southern entrance.

The convent holds now a school, but the church is a national monument, and annexed to it there's St Francis golden chapel, one of the best gems of Portuguese Baroque.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
