Amazing work of art

The church is all tiled on the outside and just a great work of art. If you are in the area then i highly recommend it.

There are beautiful tiles outside of this church. It's right down the street from the Harry Potter bookstore and Clergios Tower. Worth a stop if you are in this area.

one of the top gothic church monuments Porto has to offer but don't miss Igrega dos Congregados, probably the best.

My wife, two children, relatives and I visited Porto in August 2016. I went to this church by myself. The Igreja do Carmo is a wonderful church. All of Porto's churches are worth a visit. The outstanding feature however is outside and the large tiles (azulejos) on the side of the building.

The Church “do Carmo” or the “Igreja da Venerável Ordem Terceira de Nossa Senhora do Carmo”, is located on the crossroad between the Praça de Carlos Alberto e a Rua do Carmo, when you are coming from the Railway station of “São Bento” and are walking into the direction of the ”Torre”, and just in front of the church with...

We visited this as ourvery first "attraction" in Porto, along with the next door Carmelitas Church and the little narrow "house" in the middle. The whole thing is a must see because the tiled wall on the outside, the proximity to other "attractions" such Lello & Irmao Bookstore and Clergios Tower and of course, the beautiful interiors! What struck me... More

With so many churches to choose from these two are certainly beautiful; Igreja do Carmo the more impressive of the two and Igreja dos Carmelitas (neo classical and baroque style) but not as over the top. I thought both were interesting but found others in the city that I enjoyed more. Visitors may have a difficult time with the numerous... More

Porto is a beautiful and colorful city overall, but the churches and the Moorish designs on them are very unique. I love the blue and white murals. I went on a bus tour and saw quite a few of these igrejas. They're great to see for anyone who appreciates art/architecture.

They are figurative compositions alluding to the cult of Our Lady .. On the... More
