  • In 1754 the founder of the Brotherhood of Nossa Senhora da Lapa preached around Porto, trying to build a chapel to honour Nossa Senhora da Lapa. In 1755 the money collected was used to build the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Lapa das Confissões. Later on, Brotherhood ok Lapa decided to build a new church. The construction took over 100 years. From 1835 the Church hosts D. Pedro IV's heart kept in a monument set in the main chapel. In 1995 the Church purchased the pipe organ, a fundamental piece for the church concerts, classified as Public Interest Estate since 2013.
