Situated in the square of the main church and the Manueline pillory, Misericórdia Church was probably built in the 18th century, attached to a rock that goes into the sacristy. The façade has a Baroque Joanine style and its interior is decorated with the Joanine main altar and by the side altars, built later. Also worth highlighting is the gilt carved wood, the images and the ceiling of the main altar, presenting 36 paintings of several saints. Oil paintings date back to the 18th century, supposedly signed by Master Jerónimo da Cunha of Vila Ruiva. (National Trust Building)
