Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Alentejo / Evora District / Evora / Igreja e Convento de Nossa Senhora dos Remedios
Igreja e Convento de Nossa Senhora dos Remedios is best known for the richness of its gilded interior, standing in a stark contrast to its austere exterior, which reflects the rigidity of the religious order of Carmelites. Consecrated in the beginning of the 17th century, the church stands as an exquisite example of Baroque architecture. Notice the marble image of the Virgin on the main facade and the coat of arms of Teotonio de Braganca, the archbishop of Evora who founded the church. The outstanding set of gilded altar carvings is the work of the local artist Abreu do Obre. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Evora holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Igreja e Convento de Nossa Senhora dos Remedios and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
