  • Really recommend doing the tour here; it is more than just the church and hidden house, although those alone are enough reasons to visit. There is an interesting crypt with relics and open casket of coffin. Inside the church there are different rooms like the great meeting hall with a secret passage, many relics and you can also go inside the sacristy. You can also go on the rooftop. The hidden house was very neat; it’s the most narrow house I’ve been to. The cost of entry is 4,5€ but with Porto card you can go for 2.1€ Although the church is open at 9:00am, the ticketing office wasn’t open then. The mass starts at 9:30am so I came back around 10:00am and by that time, mass was over and the ticket office was opening up. There are plenty of cafes to go to if you need for mass to finish :) The nearby Cafe d’ouro is historical place of resistance to dictatorship. When people started looking for lice in people’s hair, that was the signal that the police is coming and to stop political discussions. Be sure to visit the church next door. (The two churches actually connect in the back.)
  • It is I l’y €1 or €2 admission fee. The church is beautiful inside and there is even a small catacomb. There is a museum part I side which explains you the history of the place. I found it fascinating. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
