The exterior of this church is amazing- beautiful old blue tiles. Actually Porto itself could becalled the Blue Town of Portugal. One of my most favourite places to visit.

The small church is next to Sao Bento train station. The blue and white tiles finishings are impressive both from outside and inside. Recommended to have a quick look around.

It is located a few steps from the São Bento Station, so it is worth a quick stop if you are in area. The inside is more impressive with a nicely carved altar. The exterior is less impressive but the blue tiles are interesting.

The primary point of interest in this church is on its exterior, where there are panels of Azulejo tiled murals. Gorgeous murals! The church is catty-corner to the Sao Bento Train Station.

This church is centrally located near the main square and São Bento train station. The beautiful tiled exterior is matched by a very decorative interior - well worth a visit.
