This church and the building next to it once formed a convent. It was built in the 16th century and became a military barracks in 1834. Although no entry is permitted as it is now the officers' mess for the local military base, it is still worth seeing for for its imposing façade. On top of either side of the front are 4 giants, known as the Boys of Grace and are supposed to symbolise the worldwide power of the Portuguese king, João III. Next to the church front is a door, and if you are nosey, you can peep inside and see, what seems to be, the lounge in the officers' mess. It is located about 100 metres from Giraldo Square.

You'll more than likely not be able to enter but that's okay. The facade is very beautiful and it's well within the centre of Evora.

Beautiful building outside. Was not able to get inside, and looking through some of the windows it appeared to be office space rather than a church. Ran across it on the way to another destination and simply admired the building and took some photos!

Pretty church from outside. Inside is pretty well maintained. Good five minutes stop for walking through the streets. Pretty architecture.

Found this church by accident walking in Evora. We were not allowed to go in at the time we found it. I believe it is now used by the military but the bells and gargoyles are beautiful.

This is near the Bone Chapel off on a side street. The building is very interesting but there is no public entry allowed.

It's old but in decent shape. I did not enter. It is near a small square with a few eateries. There are a lot of old unused churches in Evora.

A Renaissance church quite simple and unadorned. It is now used by the Portuguese Armed Forces. Open only in the afternoon

We could not go into the building, almost looks like some sort of government office.
The highlight, the design and the amazing gargoyles overlooking the square. Not sure of the exact period but they are amazing!

It's worth to get out of your way to see it, specially if medieval architecture is rare in your home town.
