We start by walking to Capela das Almas de Santa Catarina, another of Porto's churches with beautiful azulejo tiles. After gazing at the exterior we pop inside for a look. We have to be quick, the reason the church is open is that mass is about to start. After the church we stroll toward the Duro river, stopping for a coffee and some people-watching along the way.
A light rail stop is right outside the back door of El Corte de Ingles. We walk over to the stop and with a couple of other tourists decipher how to purchase tickets at the machine. The tram arrives and we take it across the river to the Aliados stop, just a short walk to the apartment.
