Present-day Episcopal temple had two predecessors. The most ancient one may have been built during the 13th century in its current location. A second temple was constructed outside the castle’s walls, where Misercórdia church is located nowadays. Current building began to be built in 1390 under D. João I reign. Different architectural styles can be observed, such as Romanic, Gothic and Manueline, since the cathedral’s construction lasted over two centuries. Inside you will see three naves and its greatest jewel, an altarpiece in Ançã stone, which is said to have been created by João de Ruão. This altarpiece has six storeys, based on the theme of the Passion and Death of Christ. It is considered a 20th century sculpture masterpiece.
