  • Baroque church designed by Nicolau Nasoni during the first half of the eighteenth century, between 1732 and 1749. Inside the church, there is an unusual elliptical nave decorated with carved wooden gold gilt in D. João V style. The chapel altarpiece is noteworthy. It is of rococo style and made up of marbles of 4 different colours. Nasoni knew how to combine granite, marble and gilded woodwork to make the church dos Clérigos and the entire architectural complex one of the most beautiful baroque-style temples and a reference point in the history of the city of Porto. It is still used today for religious ceremonies and cultural events such as organ, orchestral and choral concerts.
