There are plenty of fabulous, UNESCO azulejo churches in Porto. This one is stunning inside and out. The side of the building is a wonderful tiled wall, but the inside is incredible. Actually there are two churches side by side. Both are stunning. They are rich with gold and definitely worth seeing.

The church wasn't open when we visited on Saturday but we saw it was open on Monday so went to look. We only just managed to get in as a woman was on the door trying to stop people from entering after us. It's lovely inside with a great alter and side chapels.

You will be in the locality if visting the Library and the Tower, so do visit the Church. Well you get to see two for the price of one as right next door is the Church of the Carmelites. Do check out the history of both Church's on the net before visting. Interior decoration is great and very different to... More

A beautiful old church located about 200 meters from Clergies Tower, its worth the walk and stop in to see incredible stone and gold leaf inside. The arches are magnificent. On the small side, but worth every minute to see!!!

Two churches, side by side. But the splendor inside it, worth visit both! The art and architecture are magnificent. Not to big, but you can spend hours just looking at the details in it!

Stunning 18th century late Baroque church with a two-story exterior wall completely covered in blue and white glazed that pays homage to Nossa Senhora. Be sure to visit the neighboring church (Carmelitas) and the 3-foot wide house separating these two churches - one of the narrowest buildings in the world. The story behind this 'mini' structure is quite interesting. Be... More

This cathedral was such a magnificent sight! Beautiful inside and we had a nice surprise with the congregation singing. A must see when in Old Porto.

The church's lateral side is covered with beautifully painted tiles and the inside of the church is one of the most ornate I have come across (along with its sister Igreja Carmelitas).
