Located next to the Igreja do Carmelitas and with the narrowest house in Porto connecting them, this is a lovely church with beautiful tiled panels and a classy locking roof. Well worth checking out.

One of the most photogenic buildings and display of tiles we've seen on our travels around Portugal.

In my view this is the prettiest tiled facade in Porto. However like many churches in the city the inside is a little too rich and ornate, and not for everyone. I stick to the outside.

You might not be into religious architecture, but even so, you shouldn´t miss the Carmo church, because it´s an extraordinary piece of baroque art, which is attributed to Nasoni. If architecture and art are your thing, you´ll be delighted. Both the tiles, the rococo ornamentation...More

You cannot pass this without your jaw dropping the first time. It is a wonderful sight but be aware of tourist crowds.

We passed the church several times during our stay, but we didn't enter. Obviously this is a very popular place, since there were lots of tourists every time we passed. The outside of the building is covered with the famous tiles.

I love azulejo and that was why I came here. The beautiful blue tiles adorned the facades of this church. The interior is rococo style with lots of gold and glitter. It is very easy to find, literally across from University of Porto and within...More

As churches go, I guess they are reasonably "standard" for their times. 2 churches next to each other separated by a small narrow house - that's their claim to fame, which could be interesting if the history and stories around these 2 churches and house...More

2 churches separated by a tiny house; the one on the left is free. If you're religious , and particularly catholic, you'll probably like this despite the dark,heavy atmosphere. If you're cynical you may find it a heavily gilted dolls' house. Wonderful tiles outside though.

The outside walls of the church are covered with amazing azulejos and it's separated of an other church only by a tiny house- that you can visit for a 2€ fee that also include the catacumbs and the sacristy. We visited both churches (free) and...More
