It includes three main elements: the Clérigos Church, the Clérigos Tower and the Casa da Irmandade, which connects the church and the tower. Designed by the architect Nicolau Nasoni, this set is one of the most notable examples of the late Baroque style in Portuguese territory. It is considered Nasoni's most emblematic work, incorporating, in granite ornamentation, a dynamic rococo morphology alongside lines of vernacular continuity. The most striking architectural elements in the ensemble are characterized by the irregularity and exaggeration of the shapes, which give rise to a surprising scenic effect. Nasoni was buried in this church, in which he spent a lot of time and dedication.
