Hospital of the Misericord

In this old hospital you will notice the room by the name of do Définitório, decorated with 18C azulejos and crowned by a coffered wood ceiling. One particularly eye-catching furnishing is the burra (literally meaning a female donkey) from the 16C as well as an iron chest with a clever clasp not to mention a floor fixation device used for transporting precious objects in boats during the era of the Great Discoveries.
