The civil parish of Misericórdia, which includes the Principe Real area, is the result of the merger of the earlier civil parishes of Encarnação, Mercês, Santa Catarina and São Paulo. The name of the civil parish comes from the presence of the headquarters of Santa Casa da Misericórdia (“Holy House of Mercy”, a Portuguese charity founded in Lisbon in 1498 by Queen Leonor of Portugal) in the São Roque Church and House of professed Priests since 1768. The district has also attracted artists and many figures of the city's cultural and political elite who lived in the former and current part of Lisbon covered by the civil parish. These included well-known names such as Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, Manuel Maria Barbosa du Bocage, Almeida Garrett, Alexandre Herculano, Camilo Castelo Branco, Ramalho Ortigão, Gonçalves Crespo, Albel Manta and António Quadros. The district holds parties, religious festivities and processions but nowadays it also offers a more modern urban culture with new stores, art galleries, theatres and so on providing different events that make this civil parish both traditional and ever-changing. Misericórdia civil parish covers about 1 square kilometre and has around about 13,000 inhabitants.(All distances are approximate)
