  • Built between 1480 and 1510, is a beautiful example of Gothic Manueline architecture, which is reflected in the battlements and towers of the façade, the main portal and the vault of the nave. Inside we find ten chapels, including that of the third order, with a majestic Baroque decoration, and the chapel of bones, whose walls are lined with human bones from various cemeteries in the city. It also emphasizes the chancel, with its altarpiece in marble and images of San Francisco and Santo Domingo. The Church is open daily; from 09.00 to 18.30 hours, from June 1 to September 30; and from 09.00 to 17.00 hours, from October 1 to May 30. The visit to the Church is free, except for the chapel of bones, which is payment; entry costs € 4.

  • A stunning National Monument (The Church of St. Francis) with a unique feature - a chapel made of bones! A must visit if you are near Evora.
  • Nice church by the chapel of bones. The place has a nice feel to it and great vitro window in it.
  • The church itself is not very special but the exhibition of nativity scenes art is quite interesting with different pieces from different countries.
  • The church itself is ok but the most interesting part is the chapel of bones, that is a must see!
  • In reconstruction process for the moment 😔
