The church of Santa Casa da Misericórdia in Vila Franca de Xira dates from the 16th century. Despite some damage caused by the 1755 earthquake, the church keeps its original layout. The main features of the nave are the high choir, the pulpit, the gilt carved wood side altars and the 18th century tile panels depicting the Works of Mercy. In the chancel, one can see the Baroque retable and the tile panels, which cover the sidewalls and depict the Visitation, on the Epistle side, and Our Lady of Mercy, on the Gospel side.
