From its massive presence (even excluding the Tower) one would think you'd be visiting a sizable church. Not so. While beautiful and classically Baroque, it's surprisingly small. A quick stop will suffice, however, if you seek a more substantial house of worship in Porto, consider...More

Great old house of worship with appropriate reverence. Although the building is old and historic, it's what's inside that counts. If you are into religious houses of worship this architecture represents the standard in Porto.

The altar as it rises to the ceiling truly makes a statement of opulence in this small church. Lots of information regarding various saints was presented in English.

It would be rather odd to skip touring the church once you've been up the tower, and it has a lot to offer in its own right. The historical exhibits are interesting, but the highlight for me was the twin organs. We were lucky enough...More

This church is one of the Baroque treasures of Porto; along with the Clerigos bell tower, it creates a wonderful harmonious ensemble which should not be missed if you are in Porto. The most impressive part is a remarkable richly decorated marble altarpiece built by...More
