For only €2 it is worth a climb to see the Porto rooftops. It isn't too difficult but it can get crowded near the top where the stairs becomes narrow.

Can i be original and add something new ? No. i can´t ! The tower is great, and the view from the top is divine. It´s also great to climb all those stairs. It´s a great exercise for your legs !

Very cheap entry (I think 2 euros), and you get amazing views over the city of Porto, I loved it. It is probably the best lookout point in the city, only paralleled by the top of the great bridge crossing the Douro river.

Cheap to do and a great view from the top. So many red tiles! Shame that the church itself is closed at the moment.

Nasoni built this tower more than 200 years ago. You have to love climbing stairs. However, once you reach the top, you will see one of the best view's of Porto. If possible, go there late afternoon and watch the sunset - unforgettable memory! You shouldn't miss it.

Walking for the 200 steps, the road gets smaller and smaller (not for claustrophobic people), you arrive at the the top and you have as prize an amazing view of the city

The climb to the top was worth the effort for the view of the city. The view up into the bell tower was interesting. I would definitely recommend this attraction. The cost was minimal.

By far the main fixture in the City. 18th century stuff and part of Unesco world heritage. You can see its bell tower from almost everywhere, like the Eiffel Tower in Paris. in fact, you can use the church tower as a reference point for your tour. Over 250 steps to climb. Remarkable and beautiful. Also, the nightlife is only... More
