There are so many lovely churches in Porto. Really lovely on the inside and yet another church adorned with blue tiles.

Had a visit to the church, climbed the tower and there was a good view of the city. Was lucky to catch an organ performance too!

From the blue tiled wall outside to the fancy interior, it's an interesting church to visit. Be aware of the beggars at the entrance though!

Go to see the tile work, or azuelos. Otherwise it's another baroque Portuguese church with some weird religious art.

Absolutely awesome artwork in this site. The altars are spectacular and the main altar is photo worthy.
