Church of São Francisco church, which was finished in 1425, is the last Gothic structure in Porto. Explore the tall lancet windows in the apse before returning to the main facade, which has an elaborate gateway topped by a pretty rose window.

The interiors have some of the most extravagant gilded woodwork you could wish to see and were redecorated between the 1500s and 1700s. Intricately carved panels depicting birds, cherubs, and vegetation cover the original Gothic vaults, walls, and pillars.
