The Trinity Church of Porto was built during the 19th century, though some of the construction works also extended during the early 20th century. The church is located nearby the City Hall of Porto, and despite the fact it does not enjoy the reputation of a historical monument, it is well worth a visit. The edifice was designed by Carlos Amarante (who, amongst others, is buried here), though the final result of the works is, at least in part, due to Jose Francisco, who allegedly altered the original plans.

The church has an impressive austere facade overtopped by a bell tower, and the interior is replete with gilded woodwork and marble carvings and sculptures. The venue is often used for hosting recitals and concerts due to its wholesome acoustics.
