Displeased with the inclusion of a Mason symbol – an eagle – in the facade of the Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco , church fathers ordered the whole thing covered over in the late 18th century. It wasn’t seen until a workman installing wiring in the 1930s serendipitously discovered the beautiful, baroque sandstone facade (the only one of its kind in Brazil).
