The tiles have been added to the chapel ca 100 years after it was built. They show different scenes of franciscus and his life. Must see! The chapel holds mess every day.

This church is at the corner of the great shopping street Rua Santa Catherine. It is similar to the Carmo church in that it's exterior wrap around tile work is the best part about it.

Located at the corner lot just opposite one of the exits of the Bolhão metro station, the small chapel stood out among the other shops in the shopping street. The interior is worth checking out too.

Whether your driving past or walking around you can't help but stare at this beauty. The exterior is made up of traditional Portuguese blue tiles which tell the story of the small town of Porto. (It's also very instagrammable)

Nice church with history and beautiful tiles cover. It is meeting point for some Porto's tours. I recommend it.

Amazing tiles on the exterior of this church - locals just pass by without a second glance but they truly are beautiful. At the top of Rua Santa Caterina so very central and well worth a look
