Terceiros de São Francisco Church

At the end of Aquilino Ribeiro Park, there is a staircase which leads the steps and draws the eyes of those who climb it to the crystal clear façade of Terceiros de São Francisco Church, where dark granite emphasizes twists and turns, which fit well with the Baroque aesthetic.

The magnificent door invites you to take a tour inside where you will find a remarkable set of painted and golden tally retables in Rococo style aligned with tile panels showing moments in the life of Saint Francis and the striking 18th century organ in the choir will certainly delight you.
