This is one of my favorite places from Porto. You have a beautiful representative of Nasoni's architecture with the church and all the others room's. After the work to save and improve the conditions in the church and rooms, it deserves a good look. But the tower was the best representative and an icon of Porto. If you go till... More

On a bright sunny day you should consider climbing Clerigos Tower and behold the spectacular view of all of Porto. From here you can see City Hall in all of it's glory and all the way down to the River Duoro. There is a 3 Euro entrance fee and approximately 220 stairs to climb. The further up you go, the...

It's really worth it to go up the Clérigos Tower. Besides beeing the icon of Porto, after climbing those steps you will have na amzing view over the city. Don't miss the memorable organ concerts at the church at lunch time. It was recently renewed so in one or two months it will be excelente!

The stairway, expecially near the top, is very narrow so of you don't like that, don't go up. Once you are up, the view is beautiful. I recommend to visit this place as early as possible when there are still few visitors. Makes walking upstairs more comfortable.

Spent on the tower for a long time. We were lucky with the weather and we enjoyed the view of the city from a bird's flight.

You need to climb a lot of stairs but the view over the city is very beautiful. There are also some expositions in different rooms.

This is "the tower" of Porto. It was recently reopened to public after some well worthy restoration. Here you'll find a one of the kind catholic church, but the main atraction is the tower itself. You have to climb it up to the top. It costs around 4€ but it is money well spend. From the top you have a... More
