We visited the museum and then the church. There was more in the museum than what we had expected. The church is nice but, sadly, no longer used. The receptionist said the church is not as accessible as others and many steps to reach it....More

While getting there you have a small museum, a church and overall the possibility to go up to the towers. From there you have a magnificent view over the city and the river. A must in Porto.

Even though I went there when it should be open, it was closed. Someone was blocking the doors from inside, and no where was written if it is just temporarely closed. The man didn't explain anything either.

The relic altar piece on the side of this church is like nothing I've seen before. The craftsmanship on this golden masterpiece is so impressive that it will take you a good half an hour to appreciate its content. If you wish to see museum...More

The 2nd of an eyecatching beauty. Not necessary from outside but certainly when you enter the building. Won't take much out of your day but it may leave you slightly breathless.

Beautiful church, hidden from the main touristic places due to its somewhat secluded location. A must see. And getting there is also quite fun!
