Santa Clara Church

The façade is plain, but the interior of this 15th century church was transformed into one of Portugal’s most exceptional examples of woodwork and gilding in the 17th century.

Even after seeing the even more over-the-top interior of São Francisco Church, this rococo and baroque masterpiece doesn’t fail to impress.

It is somewhat hidden behind a small square, so it may seem a little hard to find, but it is just a couple of minutes from behind Batalha Square.
