Igreja da Misericórdia da Guarda
Artistically, it reflects a Baroque style characteristic of the region. Construction involved many stonemasons and masters from the North, particularly the Minho region, and this contributed to a sharp break with styles found across the rest of the city. While the architect has never been determined, it is known that king João V ordered the construction. His coat-of-arms is to be found above the entranceway. High up, in a niche in the façade, there is the church´s patron saint, Our Lady of Mercy.
Inside, there is a single nave with Baroque style altars with the one in the main chapel impressively large and imposing.
