Worth the fee to go in. It’ a shame that you can’t take photos even though you pay. Gold , gold gold.

From the photos of the inside, you will notice that this is a very ornate church but being able to see it in person was another thing. With baroque style architecture, this church is one of the most beautiful I have seen. Entrance fee is 8 Euros.

We went during a service so couldnt reall get a close look at all the areas, however walking through the door opens up to a spectacular view. It woth it for that alone.

Entrance fee is very expensive for what you get to see inside. Personally, I liked the outside more, the architecture is impressive.

It is built of granite and its architecture includes Romanesque and Gothic elements. The portico is in the Baroque style, built between the 17th and 18th centuries. The baroque interior of the church makes an amazing impression. It attracts attention with its lush interior, with a lot of gold , however photography is not allowed inside. In addition to the church, the visit also includes the museum and the catacombs. If I had to recommend you only one and only church in Porto, I would recommend this one. If you are in Porto then you just have to come in here.

From the outside the church doesn't look like much, but the inside is amazing with so much gold - it has to be the city's most beautiful church.

I think it’s the most beautiful church in Porto. If you have already visited the other churches in the city I can tell you that when you enter this you will be speechless for its complete gold decoration. My only advice is to visit only the church because catacombs and palace I did not like at all and do not deserve the visit.
