It was inaugurated with the presence of Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho, the renewed Clerigos Church in Porto. This work included the inspection performed by Prospectiva and was the most important work of rehabilitation and restoration supervised by the company until the date. Built between 1732 and 1748, designed by the Italian architect Nicolau Nasoni, this is the main work of this architect who moved to Porto, where he lived until his death and built works so significant in the city. Its dominant style, the Baroque is featured heavily on the facade of both the Church and the Tower of Clerics, as well as inside.
According to the president of the Brotherhood of Priests, Father Américo Aguiar, works in Clérigos didn’tm suffer “term overruns or budget”, and the monument won, 235 years after its first opening, the same “splendor” of 1779 where the “black and gray” gave way to “roses, gold and white.” “Clerics now have the tradition and modernity and culture and worship in hand,” he said.
