If your on Rua Santa Caterina for a walk you won't miss it, that's for sure.

The outside beautiful tiling grabs your attention immediately - it's stunning!

I poked my head inside but there was a mass being held do I couldn't walk around, although clearly it's not as large & or ornate as the other church drawcards.

The Portuguese tiles outside are the biggest attraction. Inside, not much difference from other churches.

Spend some time to have a detailed look at the tiles, they are extraordinary! The church is much smaller than I expected, quite simple from the inside. Worth the trip.
