...about the view! And all the stairs and the tiny narrow staircases... A bit windy on top We were walking up a very steep street on our way to there, so it was a feeling of climbing even from before the beginning...

Climbing to the top is an excellent way to get a wonderful view of the city of Porto and the river. Do not miss going up stairs and seeing the rooms and area that has been restored. You can walk completely around the top area of the church. Also do not miss going down stairs to the worship area to... More

We had been using this tower as a landmark for a few days. On Valentines Day we decided to make the climb. We were surprised to find it was half price for couples so we paid 3 euro. We began to climb and climb and arrived at the first stop. The views and pictures are truly amazing. It was quite... More

Amazing value. 3 euros for adults and free for children. Walk up was not that hard and lovely views from the tops. Would recommend highly.

Re visit or visit it for the first time. Both the tower and the church were under maintenance and so it has new glow. There are some exhibits included on the price. The view won't let you down after all the effort that you spent to reach to the top - it is breathtaking.

Full of history landmark! Just at the heart of Porto city centre! A lot of stairs to climb but is worth it!! I went with my two toddlers through the stairs!! I I've got the most amazing pictures with them at the Top! Will go again with friends that are visiting Porto for sure!!

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!
