Igreja da Misericórdia
A igreja foi edificada na segunda metade do séc.XVI, mas sofreu grandes alterações em meados doséc. XVIII. A frontaria foi então reconstruída segundo desenho de Nicolau Nasoni. Profusamentedecorada, denota já a influência do rocócó. Nointerior, salienta-se a capela-mor, ainda do primitivoedifício quinhentista. Pode também apreciar-se, nacristia, o revestimento a azulejo, do séc. XVII.

[Illustration of the church]

The church was built in the second half of the XVIth century, having undergone several changes during the XVIIIth century. The frontispiece was then rebuilt according to the project of the famous architect, Nasoni, and reflects the Rococo influence. Of great interest is the main chapel, still from the original cinquecentist building.
