“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I would say this is a must in Porto. The church itself is amazing on the inside and nothing else looked that good after seeing this. The statues and everything in there is so detailed and so beautiful that I just loved it there even though I'm usually not interested in visiting many churches.

Also the catacombs under there had beautiful lighting and quiet music, which added so much to it that I was just amazed.

It's definitely worth the 3€ ticket!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

It is a beautifully decorated church!! Take your time to admire all the art pieces, especially the wooden Barroque style Tree of Jesse.

“Stunning gilt interior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Porto is a city of churches, but this one is a real highlight. The altarpiece Tree of Jesse is a wonderful sight.
