Rococo style church with famous blue-tiled fasade located in a downtown Porto. It is worth your time to stop, and visit. It's conveniently located by the University of Porto (across the street), and beautiful garden.

This is a church that alway surprises all my friends. It's very humble facade doesn't promise much, but the interior is breathtaking. All covered with golden gilded wood, impeccable beauty. The organ is a piece of art. I would recommend visiting this church as you will find something to remember

Beautiful exemple of Portuguese Rocócó from XVIII century. Impressive tiles outside on the walls! Easy to visit, as location is very central. The image used here as a representation is not correct - it is from Igreja de Carmelitas, which is right next door to this one (nice also!).

There are beautiful tiles outside of this church. It's right down the street from the Harry Potter bookstore and Clergios Tower. Worth a stop if you are in this area.

one of the top gothic church monuments Porto has to offer but don't miss Igrega dos Congregados, probably the best.

My wife, two children, relatives and I visited Porto in August 2016. I went to this church by myself. The Igreja do Carmo is a wonderful church. All of Porto's churches are worth a visit. The outstanding feature however is outside and the large tiles (azulejos) on the side of the building.

We visited this as ourvery first "attraction" in Porto, along with the next door Carmelitas Church and the little narrow "house" in the middle. The whole thing is a must see because the tiled wall on the outside, the proximity to other "attractions" such Lello & Irmao Bookstore and Clergios Tower and of course, the beautiful interiors!
