Recently I've visited Igreja do Carmo and discovered a litle secret. There are two churches builded side by side with a narrow house between them. I've passed dozens of times in front of them and never noticed this detail. Everyone must see.

We didn’t time our visit very well as the queue for the tour was rather long and we hadn’t left enough time but the exterior tiling is incredible and worth a thorough look. Inside it is very ornate and a celebration of Portuguese eclastic craftsmanship....More

This smallest house in Porto is situated in between 2 churches. It is worth the visit to see how they lived many years ago and how small the house is. Makes you appreciate what you have. Worth the visit.
