Misericórdia’s Church

The establishing of this church is directly related to the XVIth century expansion of the Misericórdias (Houses of Mercy) within Portuguese territory. Amarante’s House of Mercy managed the city shelter’s hospital and the leprosarium. The church itself endured modifications up until the XIXth century and very recently, in an adjacent space, the Centro Interpretativo de Memórias da Misericórdia de Amarante, opened for public.
