I love azulejo and that was why I came here. The beautiful blue tiles adorned the facades of this church. The interior is rococo style with lots of gold and glitter. It is very easy to find, literally across from University of Porto and within...More

As churches go, I guess they are reasonably "standard" for their times. 2 churches next to each other separated by a small narrow house - that's their claim to fame, which could be interesting if the history and stories around these 2 churches and house...More

2 churches separated by a tiny house; the one on the left is free. If you're religious , and particularly catholic, you'll probably like this despite the dark,heavy atmosphere. If you're cynical you may find it a heavily gilted dolls' house. Wonderful tiles outside though.

Next to the Igreja dos Carmelitas is the Igreja do Carmo. Built for the monks in the 18th century a small, narrow house separates the Igreja dos Carmelitas from this church to prevent the walls of the two churches from touching because the nuns and...More

Porto has a lot of Churches, this one is fully loaded with Golden Barock Altars. U cannot switch on real Candles (only electric) and the smell is moody too (not unusually in Churches). Worth to visit, but not great like Spain or Italian Churches &...More

Built between 1756 and 1768 in the rococo or late Baroque. Igreja do Carmo and Igreja dos Carmelitas are two churches that stand almost side by side separated by a very narrow house. Together, they look like the biggest church in the city.

I'm sure Igreja do Carmo is part of every walking tour of Porto. The church, and the complex that surrounds it, are an important part of the history of he city. Our tour did not include the inside of the church as our guide attempting...More

The church is remarkable from the outside with the blue tiles. We specifically wanted to attend a service and enjoyed the service which was well supported by the locals.
