This is one of the finer examples of churches in Porto. It dominates the square which is surrounded by museums, churches and parks. Well worth a visit

This is actually two churches located wall to wall, with the so called Hidden House crammed between them. The hidden house is like a three room apartment within the church structure, with one room on each floor. The church interior is quite small and has...More

I accidentally noticed and was fascinated with this church, across from the No. 18 tram station. As the picture shows whole exterior walls are covered with beautiful blue-and-white tiles they call Azulejos. So I went close and looked at them closer. They elaborately tell stories...More

From the tile mural on the outside, to the gilded inside, this church blew me away. With such a central location, you have no excuse to miss this.

You do not have to be a religious person to enjoy the beautiful church of Carmo. Its facade is a work of art as well as its altar and its chapels. A must in Porto

I haven't see anything like this anywhere else in Europe. The side of the church is covered in painted tiles. You could stare at the details for hours.

The Church itself it nice- I paid the extra 2.50E to go inside the hidden house and the catacombs. You can also obtained a Camino stamp and passport here. The tiny house was underwhelming and cramped with all the fellow tourist squished in. House is...More
