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.

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.
