Igreja de São Francisco Guimarães
Church in Guimarães
Igreja de Sao Francisco is a gothic church that underwent numerous changes, especially in the 18th century. In the main chapel, the most notable Johannine altarpiece in the city stands out, the gilded altarpieces, rocaille-style valances and tiles depicting scenes from the life of Christ. Also worth a close look are the sacristy, with its paneled ceiling, the two-story cloister, the Gothic Chapter Room, from the 16th century, and the central fountain, dating from the 18th century. The classification includes the part constituted by the apse and apses, the cloister and the baroque building of the Third Order, which comprises the 18th-century Johannine sacristy.
