In 1498, Queen Leonora of Portugal created the first Misericórdia (House of Mercy) in Lisboa. A charitable, Church-run institution, it became the model for many other institutions known as Santas Casas (Holy Houses), that soon spread throughout Portugal and its overseas territories (a 1994 estimate counted 500 of these institutions in Portugal). For many centuries, and to a certain extent even today, the Misericórdias would be the most visible face of philanthropy (charity) in Portugal. It is only in the XIX century that a more secular and liberal inspired form of philanthropy takes hold.
