Igreja de São Francisco

Built between 1383 and 1410, it is a reference of the Gothic monumentality of the city, with an emphasis on the Romanesque portal with three arched gateways, the rosette symbolizing the Rosa Fortunae, the windows of the Manueline period and the three naves where the interior is divided, covered with gilded carving from the 17th and 18th centuries. It belonged to the Convent of the Observant Franciscans. The interior, of three naves, is highlighted by the 17th / 18th centuries carvings, frescoes and board in the main chapel, transept and sixteenth-century tombs.
