Just behind Rossio Square, and a stone's throw from the site of the church of St. Francis (under which were the cells that held victims of the Inquisition), is the church of St. Domingo. It was here that the Inquisition victims were brought from the cells to hear the verdict of the accusations against them, and thus, their fate.
Having survived the earthquake of 1755, this church was badly damaged in a fire on 19th August 1957. The inside of the church, especially the columns, bear the ravages of this conflagration.
Nowadays, the church is used by many of the immigrants from the former colonies of Portugal.
it is worthy a short visit.
