Misericordia Church Tips (3)

Misericordia Church

Located just down from the Castle, this is a must see 16th century church said to be one of the best examples of Renaissance architecture in the Algarve. The façade was made by the famous master-mason André Pilarte (finished in 1551) who also participated in the construction of the Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon. The main entrance, a round arch, is crowned by a statue of Our Lady of Mercy which is flanked by figures of St. Peter and St. Paul as well as the crest of the city of Tavira. Inside you can see the 18th century azulejos depicting the 18 Works of Mercy (Spiritual Works, Body Works and Life of Christ).

Open: Monday to Friday 9.30am to 12.30pm.
