    An imposing church by your volume in granite. Very pretty inside, has in your inside a relic of the utmost importance to the city of Porto. The heart of d. Pedro, that despite your call from Brazil, made a point of donating your heart to the city of Oporto by the contribution and support in liberal war (the good style of the city).

    For the holidays from mid-May to ND of Lapa, the entire Church is topped with flowers fresh in carpet and up and down. It is beautiful and indescribable... A must see.

  • This church is a bit out of the way if you're staying at Baixa, but if your interested in history you definitely should pay a visit to "Igreja da Lapa" as this is the place where lies the heart of Pedro IV, King of Portugal and first Emperor of Brazil. If you want to watch one of the few occasions when the heart was taken out of its place, search "Coração D. Pedro retirado Lapa" on YouTube. If you want to get the historical context, try "Portugal: A Companion History" by José Hermano Saraiva.

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.
