I've never seen anything quite like this gorgeous church. If you love the color blue like me, you too will have your mind blown!! Gorgeous hues. I could not visit inside as Mass was going on and I didn't want to disturb. Outside is enough!

Although the interior is quite simple, the outside walls covered in intricate scenes in traditional cobalt blue tiles is a must see.

The tile work is where I gave the 5 stars. It is clean, intricate, and in great condition. The interior is not notable, although it also has some tile work, which I haven't seen much even in the Portuguese church interiors.

It is located in the top of walking street in Porto near the market. The wall of the church is very beautiful and colorful.

This chappel was built in the 18th century. The outer walls were tiled in 1930. The magnificent tile panels represent steps of the life of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Catherine, who are venerated in the chapel.
