Igreja da Misericordia
📍 From Praça da Sé, Portugal
The Igreja da Misericordia in Viseu, Portugal, is a stunning religious monument dating back to the early 16th century. The elaborate Baroque-style façade is decorated with intricately painted tiles, framed stencil windows, and impressive sculptures. Inside, the church's ceiling is adorned with frescoes of Biblical scenes, while a variety of religious artworks adorn the walls. The rich ornamentation of the Igreja da Misericordia pays homage to the influence of Portugal's 17th-century Golden Age of Art. The interior of the church is illuminated by the large stained-glass windows, which cast a stunning light on both the artwork and the beautiful oil lamps hanging overhead. The best way to explore the Igreja da Misericordia is to take a quiet stroll outside its gate and marvel at its intricate décor. It is also a great place to observe local life, as many visitors come here to pay their respects and request blessings from the priest.
