Igreja da Misericórdia, Faro


The church was built on the site of the earlier Igreja Manuelina do Espírito Santo.

The Igreja da Misericórdia is designed in the shape of a Greek Cross. The facade and attached hospital were rebuilt by the noted Italian architect Francesco Xavier Fabri (1761-1817), who was responsible for the design of a number of buildings in Faro including the Arco da Vila, the Seminário Episcopal and the Ermida de São Luís.
