Santa Casa da Misericórdia

Baixo Alentejo

For a dip into history, take a stroll through the corridors of this once grand hospital. It opened back in the early 1500s (only closing to patients in 1969), and you can still see some of the carved Manueline-style stone arches and columns. Take a peek inside the old pharmacy, which is preserved as an intriguing relic from decades past.
