Ordem Terceira de S. Francisco

Main Façade

 

 

The Church of Ordem Terceira de São Francisco began being built in 1772 and its construction was completed in 1777.

Its facade features an elegant style of the period of transition from Rococo to Neoclassical.

Also the interior stands out by the sobriety of Neoclassicism, especially the work of carving. Worthy of admiration is the venerable image of the Senhor dos Aflitos that, for many years, on the night before the Pilgrimage of Senhora D’Agonia is translated to the Mother Church with  processional order accompanying to appear the next day in the traditional and grand procession of the  solemn Feasts of Viana do Castelo.
