The tile work is among the best in Portugal, so if you are a fan, this is a must. It's a lovely church in the middle of other sites.

We saw this church from across the square - the blue tile work on the side stood out. It is amazing that they have 100s or 1000s of tiles that are each unique to create that artful scene. The interior is not notable.

I have never seen a twinned church before, so was interested in looking at both this church and dos carmelitos. We went after the end of mass. It was nice to see the church still in use.
