This church, integrated in the city walls, was built by order of king Pedro II, in 1681.
Seriously damaged by Lisbon earthquake in 1755, it was restored about 50 years ago, respecting its original Baroque style.
It is nice, the central square of Mourão. Dominated by a flourished band stand, classified as national monument, the well gardened square, with Portuguese cobblestone pavements, is surrounded by elegant buildings respecting the style proportions and colours of the region.

one of the most beautifull spots
in my favourite Portugal region- ALENTEJO
Linked to Misericordia church by an arch, the interior of this small Baroque church is covered by tiles from the 18th century. No changes were made, and everyhing in it is original.
A very simple church, built in 1719 in Baroque style, became even simpler in 1998 after a few reconstruction works. It is located close to City Hall.
The traditional look of Alentejo is well present in City's centre.
Small sized buildings giving a village's look, white walls and an absolute calm are, really the true Alentejo at its best.
Conquered by the Christians in 1271, this castle witnessed many wars, suffering the consequent transformations, when some Manueline details were added
