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,...More

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.

I don't know if you can go into the Capela, it was closed when we walked by. The building is very nice with all the tiles, typical of Portugal, and a nice photo stop while walking on Rua Santa Catarina.

This is a real standout of the tiled churches. The work is remarkable. Beautiful artistry and a well balance exterior.

Happened onto this on the way back from the open air farmers market. Charming and full of the blue tile Portugal is famous for.
