Percurso Barroco do Porto

Being the polychromy and exuberance of the shapes the main features of Baroque, it is not possible to walk through the city without noticing the many baroque buildings the city owns. This architectonic style can be seen in several buildings of civil and religious architecture of Porto. Some of the best examples of this style are the Clérigos Church and Tower, the Misericórdia Church’s façade, Santo Ildefonso Church and The Holly See, being this last one, of Romanic origin, one of the first to suffer baroque changes. From the Clérigos to the Santo Ildefonso Church we can observe a set of works with high aesthetic value which reflect this well known style in the city.
