If you are in the middle of Rua Santa Catarina,the main commercial street of Porto, you will find the Capela das Almas which is both beautiful inside and outside.

If your on Rua Santa Caterina for a walk you won't miss it, that's for sure. The outside beautiful tiling grabs your attention immediately - it's stunning! I poked my head inside but there was a mass being held do I couldn't walk around, although clearly it's not as large & or ornate as the other church drawcards.

The Portuguese tiles outside are the biggest attraction. Inside, not much difference from other churches.

Spend some time to have a detailed look at the tiles, they are extraordinary! The church is much smaller than I expected, quite simple from the inside. Worth the trip.

The Capela das Almas is a magnificent church, it's famous for the tiles covering the outside walls, and deservedly so they are truly superb. When I visited it was impossible to take a photograpgh as there were so many people and cars spoiling the view, next time I go very early in the morning.

This was the first sight of Porto we saw when leaving the metro on our way from the airport. What an introduction to this city. We climb the metro steps and see the most amazing tiled chapel I have ever seen, The artwork is superb.
