Religious Sculpture in the Museum of Sao Francisco
The Church of Sao Francisco is one of the most fascinating religious edifices in Porto, Portugal. The venue no longer serves as functional place of worship, but it is the most striking church in the city in terms of decorative patrimony, valuable from the point of view of its aesthetic qualities and from a pecuniary perspective alike.
On top of the artistic patrimony, what is also of note in respect to the Church of Sao Francisco is its catacombs shelter the mortal remains of thousands of people. There’s also a museum, the Museum of Sao Francisco, consisting of artifacts from the former monastery.
