Situated on a corner in the walking street Rua Santa Catarina, the chapel is remarkable for the huge tiles mural on the side wall and front of the building. The interior is also worth viewing with gilt statues and art works

Worth a visit when walking around the old part of town. Architecture is interesting both inside and out. Nicely decorated and still functioning AND no charge.

I don't usually like visiting churches, but this one looked very nice from the outside. Not one of these huge fancy ones, but covered with blue and white tiles (as you typically see on facades in Porto). Inside, it was relatively small, but nice as...More
