Construction may have begun in 1598, but this church wasn’t inaugurated until 1698. Originally the place of worship of Jesuits, the church was appropriated when the Jesuits were expelled from Poland in 1598. Its facade, majestic and elegant and simple, bears the sculptures of four Jesuit saints. There is a distinct architectural difference in the lower (Mannerist) and upper (Baroque) halves of the facade. This duality is also to be found in the ornamentation inside the monument. Inside, you’ll find 17th and 18th century gilded woodwork in the main chapel; the chapel of Francisco da Fonseca; and the 16th century Gothic-Manueline baptismal font near the entrance.
