Great view

The climb up the tower isn't too hard and the view from the top is breath-taking. The church is lovely too- make sure you go up as far as the choir.

Seriously : the Christ figure in this churches' multiple scenes is a look-alike of Conchita Wurst, hilarious. Facade is nice, and so is the situation on a square with cafe terraces near a small park.

What looks like just one big church is actually two connected by what is one of the world's narrowest houses - just 1 meter wide! To the right is Carmo Church, built in the 18th century. Outside it is covered in blue and white tile panels. The house that separates the two churches was inhabited until about 20 years ago... More

The outside of the church is covered by blue and white tiles. It is just gorgeus. There are actually two churches, the Carmo and the Carmelite church. There is a wall beetwen the two churches, it was told this is for the moral - the one was for woman the other for man! The church inside is full of golden... More

This church is walking distance from the Clerigos Tower and the Library and can be accessed from a big square. Do not miss both entrances as it can get a bit confusing. No payment at either of them and both have truly gorgeous interiors.

I walked in and straight out. It is a church for VERY religious people.It was too heavy for me.It is next to the peaceful Carmelite Church. Look for the small 'house' separating the two churches.

This is another beautiful example of the Portuguese use of decorative tiles and here you have a very large area of it. After admiring it, take a peak inside at the extravagant interior, as usual in most of the churches, which must be appreciated for the craftsmanship. Well worth a quick stop if in the area.

The tiles on the outside of the Carmo are excellent, although it is hard to get a good picture because of the street clutter. The interior of the church is quite impressive with the use of blue in many of the naves.

There's a theme going through many of the outstanding buildings in Porto - the Blue and White tiled exteriors - and this Church is no exception. You can't tire of marvelling at the beauty of the expansive, exterior tiled walls of this Church and you can even forgive the uglier, brash religious art crammed within.

The inside of the church is definitely a work of art. However, the huge blue & white tile wall on the outside is the real masterpiece. Worth checking it out.
