We were in Porto in last November and this church was very closed to our hotel, on the southern side of Palacio de Bolsa. The Church of S. Nicolau is very small but beautiful and built in 1758 when the old church was destroyed due to fire. Inside , we found beautiful wood work.

Even though the church is in a busy area it doesn't seem to get many visitors. Therefore it was nice to go in and sit quietly looking around,

A church located close to the Palace of Bolsa. We went in for a quick peek on the way towards the river.

Not the best Church in Town, but it's free, and worth a peek Good landmark for San Francisco Church- right across the street and the Palacio do Bolsa. If you want to dine in the area please pick Adega do Sao Nicloau it;s the best one in the area!

across from the Bolsa and San Francisco peso if you are crunched for time it provides a very good example of a smaller typical northern Portuguese church

This church is located on the southern side of Palacio de Bolsa and is a quiet place, not as ostentatiously gorgeous as other places. It was also the place where some French men decided to hit me with their umbrellas and not even bother to apologise despite probably categorising themselves as classically stylish........and only laugh every single time I met...

The carvings are stunning and the colours are vivid. There was soft music playing and the white flower arrangements around the church were exquisite. The alter was very attractive indeed. It is a very... More
