  • The MMPO- Museu e Igreja da Misericórdia do Porto (Museum and Church of Misericórdia do Porto) is located in the historic centre of Porto, in Rua das Flores, at the building that used to be the head office of the institution from the mid-16th century to 2013.
    Over the centuries, the building underwent several changes, the most recent one, being adapted into a museum.
    MMIPO is a member of the Portuguese Museums Network and presents itself with a double purpose of revealing the history of Santa Casa da Misericórdia do Porto and its institutional purposes, as well as displaying its collections of art and objects related to Misericórdia's action, through the provision of a series of resources that show the memory and identity of this organization, forwarding it into the future. A visit to the Museum is also an opportunity to learn more about the past and present of this part of the city. The museum includes the Misericórdia Church, a 16th-century building that had a major renovation in the 18th century, carried out by Nicolau Nasoni, and the Benefactors' Gallery, an example of the city's iron and glass architecture. The MMIPO was chosen the best Portuguese Museum in 2016.
