Stunning facade with large blue mural tiled wall and makes an amazing spectacle. Entrance is €2.5 which includes the second narrowest house in Europe which is also interesting to see. Take part in the enjoyable and informative free walking tour to learn of the story....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.

The walls outside are a classic shot of Porto, there are usually cars parked there that will be in any photo hehehe. The insides are like any other church in my opinion, but the tile works outside are worth a stop.

What a nice surprise to see the azulejos from the street corner. Around 11:00 am and 1:00 pm should be the best time of the day. Worth the walk on Santa Catarina Street.

This is a very impressive and beautiful church. The tiles on the exterior are very nice. The interior is ornate and over-top-decorative. The organ is unusual, in that, there are horizontal horns protruding from the pipe area. We recommend this church highly.

The church was nice, but nothing special. The pictures on the outer wall were nice to look at, but there are several churches like this in Porto.
