Church São Francisco

This church, built in the 15C, was modified in the 17C. Only the portal and chevet has preserved their original Gothic character. A Baroque gilt wood altar is decorated with 18C azulejos. The sacristy has an attractive coffered ceiling decorated with gargoyles. The capitular hall, which looks onto the Renaissance cloister, is closed by a beautiful Gothic grille.
