Church of São Nicolau
The Church of S. Nicolau is very representative of the city's religious architecture of the late eighteenth century. It was built in 1758 after a fire destroyed an older medieval church. The façade is Neoclassical with some Baroque elements. In the nave of the building, notice the Rococo gilt wood work, and the altarpiece of Saint Elói, patron saint of goldsmiths. In the sacristy, various works of art and pieces of jewelry are exhibited.
