Igreja da Misericórdia do Porto
The Porto’s Misericórdia Church is from the XV century and its front is by Nicolau Nasoni. It suffered profound changes during the XVIII century. The rococo style is quite obvious on its decorations. Inside, the main chapel, which is from the primitive construction, deserves a careful look. At the Mesários room, a masterpiece of the gothic painting stands out.
