Igreja da Misericórdia de Chaves

The Igreja da Misericórdia de Chaves in Chaves dates from 1532 but the church and its architecture that we see today is mainly from the 18th century.

The superb azulejos tile work, altarpieces and interior ceiling were all completed in the 18th century.

The main façade is in granite and is framed by large Corinthian pilasters, topped by a large pediment with a niche.
