In the Terreiro do Paço (Palace Square), Agostinhos (the Augustinian convent), founded in the thirteenth century and rebuilt in the seventeenth, was used as the burying place of the Dukes of Braganza from 1677 onwards. The church is an example of Portuguese Baroque, with its imposing but rather heavy facade flanked by two tall bell towers.
