“Best View of Porto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

There isn't much else to see at Clerigos, but it really is worth it to climb the tower. Just 200+ steps and you have the most stunning view of the city!

“Worth the climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Top marks even from my wife who finds any steps a challenge let alone 240 of them. Wonderful views over the town and river Douro.

“Great view on a clear day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

There really is a great view from the top and it is worth negotiating the narrow staircase and the 200+ steps to get to the top. It can be hard when people come down as people go up.
It is a great place to go up early in your visit to Porto so that you can get your bearings.

“Nice view over the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

If you go upstairs on the tower there's an amazing view over the all city. The church is now open to the public I recommend!

“Lots of steps but great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Tons of steps and narrow, so a bit difficult when everyone is trying to pass going in opposite directions, but this is worth it for the views. Great views of the whole surrounding area (there are two top viewing areas, and the upper one has stones you can stand on to see over the ramparts thus affording a much better view). Not free but cheap admission. The church connection with the tower is also beautiful.
