Misericórdia Church

Almeida

Almeida

This place of worship was built in the late 17th century supposedly by Jerónimo Velho de Azevedo. The architecture of the façade replicates the composition of Porta Magistral de Santo António. It has an irregular rectangular layout, two sides of which are covered in wood. The chancel is demarcated by a triumphal arch with a 19th-century altarpiece in gilded wood on each side. The church was attached to the old hospital of the same name to form Casa da Misericórdia.
