The tiled facade of this church strikes you if you take the national road from/to Porto to/from Aveiro. Definitely worth a visit and a detour if you're on this route.

I was surprised by the originality of this church, whose facade is completely tiled with religious scenes. The interior is also largely tiled. The church is very well maintained and very beautiful. Well worth a visit. Be aware that it will not even be open....More

We find this church and city on the way from Aveiro to Porto. It is a very colorful decorated church in Protugal. It is very worth to visit.

One of the most unique Roman Catholic Church in the Aveiro region. The main entrance is fully tiled with painted religious scenes. The interior is also artistically very rich. Abstaining from any religious beliefs or orientations the building is a prodigious work of art worth...More

Well worth making the trip to Valenga just south of Ovar to see this amazing church. It is covered with beautiful painted tiles both inside and out. The village is sleepy. You can get a cheap lunch across the square. If you are going down...More

Stone church in a small village, covered with tiles inside and outside. The front outside wall and the inside are painted with biblical scenes, the outside lateral walls are covered with blue tiles. Worth seeing.
