Clerigos tower provides a great view of the city of Porto. There aren't too many stairs to the top, however, when the tower is busy it's frustrating trying to get past all the people they let in at once. However for 2 euros, I would recommend this to travellers to Porto, good quality for a cheap price.

There is a brand new mini mall with chic shops across from the tower. There is a large grove of olive trees covering the roof of the mall, an architectural delight and homage to the an important part of Portuguese culture.

Stunning full-round panoramic view can be enjoyed from the top of the more than 250-year-old tower for a symbolic price. The Igreja dos Clérigos is also worth a visit, it has a strange oval shape.

You can get a nice overview from Porto! Although it is a very steep and tiring way up, it's worth! And with the Portocard (very recommended) you pay only 2 euros entrance fee.

You need to go the view is magnificience....there you can see the all city, don´t misse it. Entrance is in the side of the Church, you must go for the stairs, wich is an adventure , but when you arrive in top...you wil not regret...it's a nice point to end the city tour, you enjoy identifiing the monuments you had...

A good tower to go up if you are fat or lazy, but still want to tell your chums that you have been up a very high tower. Actually it isn't very high, but if you are trying to impress girls then you wouldn't necessarily mention that.

The climbing is not too easy especially when it is crowded due to the fact that the stairs are very narrow and it is hard to "meet" people going in the opposite direction. But the view from the top is stunning.

This is one of the most famous places in Porto - and worth its title. There you can see not only great medieval architecture, but also have a 360 view of the city. Climb it!

Definitely worth a visit, but maybe not when its raining! Just 2euro to climb the narrow stair wells to the top - 240 steps, at over 75mts you get a great 360 view all over Porto!
