Igreja dos Clérigos
In fact, its architect, Nicolau Nasoni, did risk a genuinely Italian inspired baroque style. The frontal façade is elegant and harmonious and supported by two pairs of Tuscan columns resting on bases adorned with vegetal motifs. These frame an elegant porchway leading onto an ocular entrance surrounded by excellent architectonic work.
The raised finial, of sumptuous grace, forms a broad arch on which stands a sculpture of the Apostle Saint Peter, flanked by two archangels.
Inside, there is a single nave with impressive tiling depicting scenes from the Evangelists on lower sections of the walls. There are also valuable retables of which the most impressive is the main altar.
