  • Located at the corner of Fernandes Toms and Santa Catarina streets, close to the temporary Bolhao Market, the Chapel of Souls (Capela das Almas), built in the 18th century (erected on the site of an old wooden chapel called Santa Catarina), is especially popular for the many azulejos that have been adorning its façade and bell tower since 1929. In 15947, these traditional earthenware tiles with blue and white painted motifs were made by the painter and ceramicist Eduardo Leite; they cover 360 m2 and represent the different stages of the life of St. Francis of Assisi as well as the martyrdom of St. Catherine, to which the chapel is still dedicated. The interior of the church is also rich in talhas douradas (wooden sculptures covered with gold leaf). You can also admire the painting by Nossa Senhora das Almas (Our Lady of Souls), which dates back to the 18th century. Free access.
