"Igreja de São Francisco" Igreja de Sao Francisco - Church Tip by Willettsworld


Located on the other side of the large car park from the old town, the original church was built in 1674 but was reoriented with an octagonal transept and a new nave in the middle of the 18th century. An attached cloister was also built. The interior is said to feature Baroque tiles depicting the life of St Francis and rococo woodwork but was closed when I visited.
