Church of São Francisco
This Gothic church, which has preserved its pretty rose window, is entered through a 17C doorway. The Baroque decoration is a veritable triumph. The altars, the walls, the vaults, disappear beneath a profusion of gilded and sculpted wood depicting vine branches, cherubs and birds. Notice Jesse's tree, in a chapel on the left... The house of the Third Order of St Francis has a permanent collection of sacred art.
