    Turning right for the railway station of San Bento and up we can during a short walk to reach the Church, which attracts the attention of the characteristic blue tiles depicting historical scenes. This is the place to visit.

    The church has a pretty small interior — all wood and with simple but vry fascinating statues of saints. The true jem is the exterior, though, all covered in azulejos (a work that was done in the Thirties) — they give the church an unique look that I'm sure is very hard to find anywhere else in Europe. The Church has a wooden Interior decorated with beautiful statues, but little one, and I found it very impressive. The real treat, however, is the outside, covered with azulejos in the 1930s and offering a magnificent glance, as well as a unique aspect that I rarely happen in other parts of Europe.

    We didn't actually get to see the inside of this church as it was in the throes of a parade (great to watch) and then closed the next day. Externally it is attractive from the front with the character...  more »

  • Well preserved 18th century church. Good place to visit, relax, and admire one fine example of architecture in Porto.
  • Another fantastic church, interior makes an impression as well as exterior. It's good to visit it afternoon so sun is starting to throw golden light on its facade.
  • Great looking and nice square in front to give you a full view.
  • Pretty, but very creep glass sided coffin things
  • Very beautiful church richly decorated Azurela.

Where to stay in Porto

Portugal's second city offers a healthy variety and quantity of accessible accommodations. The historical city center on the northern bank of the River Douro teems with hotel options, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses, which often have shared rooms, to upscale, luxury hotels housed in larger buildings and packed with amenities. All of these options place you conveniently close to the town's main sights, including churches, historical squares, and more. On top of that, many hotels on the northern bank boast good views from their hilltop vantage points. If you want to save big on cost, it's worth considering a more low-key hostel or small hotel on the less-popular southern bank.
