Tui is on the Camino Portugues Route, a route that starts from Lisbon to Santiago, Spain. From the Fortaleza in Valenca, Portugal, I was able to take pictures of the Cathedral from a distance. We started our hike from Valenca early in the morning, eager to get to Tui and do a bit of sightseeing before we continued on our... More

Well worth the visit. If I remember right entrance fee was 6 euro which entitled you to visit to cathedral, museum and inner courtyard. Very peaceful

This cathedral is different from any other I have visited. Smaller, and most original. The side chapels are quite original and charming, and the organ is very beautiful. It is quite worth the visit.

Find time for a stop in Tui...the Cathedral is very impressive and of course worth a look. Stop for a drink on the main square and watch the world go by for a few moments and admire the old balconied buildings with intricately decorated windows - faded glory... Walk to views of the River close by. Take the opportunity to... More

Lively quaint town on a river. Church is beautiful. A great start for the St. James' Way. Started in Porrinho ( about 13 km further down the road) as the 100 km milestone for the pilgramage to Santiago de Compostela is there. Great, never to forgotten, experience.

We walked from Valenca to the village and visited the cathedral. As with many cathedrals this one was also very impressive in its grandeur.

The tiny city of Tui is a gem.Not only a Cathedral,old town and river walks,a walk across the bridge over the Minho river and you can visit Portugal. The resturants are varied and friendly.Tourist office can supply maps and timetables.

We visited Tui Cathedral during our recent trip to Tui. It's a fine cathedral, a proper one with a bishop and has been around since the mid 13th century. Tui sits on a hill and the cathedral has served as both a cathedral and a fortress since then. This means that from the outside it possibly lacks the grace of... More
