  • The azulejos depict scenes of life of two Saint Catarinas, an amazing sight. The chapel itself is classic.

  • Beautiful chapel with its exterior made completely of Portuguese tile. We visited multiple churches on our trip to Porto. This chapel is small & does not charge admission, but remember to be respectful as people still come to worship. It's really great for sitting down, admiring the aesthetic, and having a word with God if you practice the faith.
  • Azulejos - world known Portugal's blue and white tiles decorate many Churches, squares, metro stations,...you name it. Here, at the Chapel of Souls, they're at their best - the entire front and side facades are covered with them framed by old stone work, depicting Biblical scenes and local saints. It's a feast for eyes and your camera - a must visit Church. The interiors are also nice, yet not that decorated like we saw in many others. Here, the main star is the outstanding exterior.
