I bought tickets to this museum as part of a package of tickets. It is a small space over several floors with some interesting artefacts - particularly the chalice made from donated wedding rings. The visit includes the church attached to it. I’m not convinced...More

I got to know Misericordia first from its overseas branch in the former Portuguese enclave of Macau. It has a very long history of charitable work. Noting that there's a museum on this institution in Porto, I am interested to see what's there. It's also...More
