Church of Santa Clara (Igreja de Santa Clara), Porto

3.9
At the hidden, 15th-century Church of Santa Clara (Igreja de Santa Clara), view some of Portugal's most impressive and beautiful woodwork and gilding. Just minutes from Batalha Square, discover the small church tucked away from mainstream tourism. The church's exterior is relatively simply designed, but the structure's interior was transformed in the 17th century into an intricate work of art. Walk inside and admire at the unbelievably detailed Rococo and Baroque masterpiece that covers the entire interior of this building. Though it does not compare in size to other Portuguese cathedrals, the might of this church's ornate interior makes it just as beloved and worthwhile to visit.
