    I don't speak Portuguese well; please excuse me for writing in English. I'm trying to read a few documents in Portuguese about a church in Porto. What part of the church is the 'capella mor'?

    Thank you in advance!

    Welcome to the our forum, paper&ink, :)

    Well, you can use English anywhere here.
    Capela mor is the central and biggest niche with images in a Catholic church. Have a look at this pic. That part on the bottom is the capela mor.
