Church of Santa Clara (Igreja de Santa Clara) reviews
Manuel was the assistant working there, with excellent English and a clear passion for the church. He showed us so much history, nooks, and secrets, with an infectious storytelling. It may be under repairs, but if you’re lucky to have the right volunteer working, centuries of secrets can unfold for the unsuspecting tourist! The gold leaf is gorgeous, and the baroque style enchanting.
Amazing intricate and beautiful wood carving and intense gold. Only walk in/walk out though. Have a conversation with the guard for a more in-depth visit.
