Igreja de São Nicolau

3 reviews of Igreja de São Nicolau

rococo altarpiece

This church is located directly across from the Church of San Francisco and basically right next door to the iconic Stock Exchange Palace, in the Infante Don Enrique Square. It's an old medieval church that had to be rebuilt after a fire in the year 1758; For that reason it has a mixture of both classical and baroque styles. It was named by the Bishop of Oporto, Nicolau Monteiro, ve had it built.

It's small, with a single nave, where the highlight is the main facade decorated with tiles and large windows, with a monumental doorway flanked by columns where the coat of arms of the bishop can be found.
