I love blue and white glazed tiles, azulejos, so the facade of Igreja de S. Nicolau was another treat for me. Unfortunately, the church was closed at the time of our visit but I was happy to enjoy the lovely facade of this small church.

Based on photos posted of the inside of this small church, I had hoped to be able to get access but unfortunately it was closed on both occasions that we tried over two days before leaving Porto. Maybe we'll be lucky on our next visit?

This small church has a beautiful blue tiled facade and the interior is quite lovely too. It is located just across the street from the Bolsa Palace towards the river.

Even though the church is in a busy area it doesn't seem to get many visitors. Therefore it was nice to go in and sit quietly looking around,
