Igreja e Convento de São Francisco

Built in the XIV century, the church was dedicated only in 1562. The changes it suffered through times are visible at the Renaissance and baroque details in the lateral chapels. It was to be demolished in the XX century but it became a prison and, later, was given to the Companhia Leirience de Moagens.
