Igreja da Misericórdia de Faro

This church, sided by a hospital, started its construction in 1581, in the place of the old Espírito Santo hermitage, by order of the bishop Dom Afonso Castelo Branco. In the sequence of the great damage inflicted by the earthquake in 1755, the façade was remodelled and a new hospital was built.
