Treasures of our ChurchesPorto
Come and discover the secret treasures inside and outside our churches, from rich golden altarpieces to ancient wooden sculptures. This journey takes you into the artistic side of Portuguese faith and veneration, a wealthy and bright world of gold, silver, marble and exquisite wood. The embellishment of churches and sanctuaries was once a big part of Portuguese cult, many times sponsored directly by the citizens, from the poorest in the alleyways to the manor lords. A part of our past that endures untouched.
