"Churches, Capela das Almas" Porto Favorite Tip by Martin_S.
Porto General: 81 reviews and 135 photos
Favorite thing: When we walked (on Santa Catarina Street) past the Capela das Almas there was some type of ceremony inside so we enjoyed only the outside so as not to disturb them.
For sure this was one of the most decorated churches we came across and probably the only one where the exterior outshone the interior.
That first photo I took from a store shop entryway, trying to get ALL the church facade into my photo (you need a wide angle lens that I do not have), and we almost got it all.
The tiles themselves portray
"The Death of St. Francis of Assisi"
"The Saint in the presence of Pope Honorious III"
"The Martyrdom of St. Catherine"
Impressive one and all.
