The Portuguese tiles outside are the biggest attraction. Inside, not much difference from other churches.

Spend some time to have a detailed look at the tiles, they are extraordinary! The church is much smaller than I expected, quite simple from the inside. Worth the trip.

The Capela das Almas is a magnificent church, it's famous for the tiles covering the outside walls, and deservedly so they are truly superb. When I visited it was impossible to take a photograpgh as there were so many people and cars spoiling the view, next time I go very early in the morning.

This was the first sight of Porto we saw when leaving the metro on our way from the airport. What an introduction to this city. We climb the metro steps and see the most amazing tiled chapel I have ever seen, The artwork is superb.

This beautiful church with blue and white tiles is on Rua de Santa Catarina; I almost walked pass it every day when I was in Porto because my hostel was nearby.

Found on the main shopping street of Rua de Santa Catarina, this stunning church is covered head to toe in small hand painted tiles.

The church was closed when we went to see it on a Saturday but I couldn't any opening times. Anyway the tile work on the outside is quite enjoyable.

I've seen one too many churches and while I didn't go into this one, I could appreciate its beauty from the outside. The tiles are amazing and fortunately something very different.
