Capela de São José das Taipas (São José das Taipas Chapel), Porto

Capela de São José das Taipas (São José das Taipas Chapel), Porto

Capela de São José das Taipas is located on Rua Dr. Barbosa de Castro. Construction on the church began in 1795 and finished only in 1878. The delay was caused not only by a lack of cooperation but also by a number of disruptive social and politic events that occurred at the beginning of the 19th century. Inside, the church has a nave, along which runs a balcony with iron railings. Behind the main altar there are another four side altars dedicated to health, conception, the Lady of Sorrows and St. Anthony.
