    This is an impressive baroque church built on the Hill of the self by the Jesuits: majestic interior is also very nice and the altar of our Lady of the purification. For a time, after the expulsion of the Jesuits from Portugal, this church became the property of the University of Coimbra until it was repurchased by a brotherhood of Franciscan friars. Definitely worth a visit.

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.
