This church seems to be very high on the list of churches to visit in Porto; yet it is very difficult to even get there. Opening hours are very difficult to understand - not published online, and when asking in the nearby convent, they were very unkind.

It would seem it is open in the mornings app. from 9-12AM and again later afternoon from 4 or 5PM till after evening mass. I went twice with no luck and finally managed a Friday morning around 11AM to get in.

The church is 18th century replacement of a 16th century church built in what used to be the Jewish neighborhood of Porto. The funding of the church should have come from converted Jews.

Squeezed in at the end of a narrow street, it is difficult to get a good perspective and the façade is in dire need of restoration works.

So if open when you pass, then check it out - but do not go out of your way!

We rented an apartment near here, so we walked past this very old and big parish church many times. So we eventually went inside and were impressed, a bit dark, but ornate.

There are a lot of old churches in Porto and It is a bit hard to distinguish them. This one was in the neighborhood where we stayed so we walked past it many times and stepped inside. Ornate. Some people take tours.

In the medieval Vitória quarter of the city, at the edge of the tall rocky bank over the River Douro. this church stands on a previously Jewish community-owned land. Currently a Catholic parish church, it features impressive woodcarvings from the 18th century when it was redone, following a devastating fire.

..... delightfully characterful church with historic overtones to be found within the beautiful Ribeira district of Porto.

A most impressive structure that is one of the larger churches to be found.

Lots of other things to be seen nearby so a visit to this area is well worthwhile.

The Church of Nossa Senhora da Vitória, built between 1755 and 1769 in Porto's medieval Vitória neighborhood, replaced an early church from 1539. Renovated in the Baroque style in the 18th century, it features impressive wood carvings by artists such as Francisco Pereira Campanhã and José Teixeira Guimarães. The main altar houses the sculpture of Nossa Senhora da Vitória by António Manuel Soares dos Reis, one of the leading realist artists of his time. Other highlights include works by Guilherme Ferreira Thedim, master of religious sculpture.
