"St Francis Monument Church" Porto Things to Do Tip by Roadquill

Porto Things to Do: 486 reviews and 998 photos

 
 

The church and monastery were started in the early 1200's, but not completed until 1410 in its Gothic form. It is considered to contain some of the finest examples of gilded caring wood in Portugal. The large alterpiece represents the Tree of Jesse and is from around 1718. The detailed carvings are simply amazing. There is also a museum and crypt.
