Cost of 3.50 Euros. Museum was very small, the crypt a bit eerie and upper rooms all very basic. However the church is impressive amazing woodwork and interior painted gold. outside was also impressive. Church worth a visit if in area but if on a short stay or tight budget wouldn't put it on my list.

At same price (!) you have possibility to visit, church, museum and crypt. Without paying this fee, you were not allowed to go into the church :( Must say that even the wooden (partly cold-plated) decorations there is also better churches to see in Porto.

3.5e admission.
The crypts were not my thing. Those bones were just a bit too mushed up for my liking.

The church however was brilliant for its wood work.

I am very happy that I did not pass up a visit into Sao Francisco church. Its beautiful exterior is far surpassed by the interior designs. There is so much detail and beauty in the design which covers the entire church. Much of the design is covered in gold. Next to the church is a small museum but across and under was a crypt with wall to wall graves. You literally are walking on the graves which look like doors into the floor. If you go to the back of the crypt there are 2 small openings in the floor that are covered by plastic and bars which if you look into you see piles of bones. Its an eerie feeling but definitely worth a visit. All 3 (church, museum and crypt) are accessible with one ticket, 3.50euros
