“A lot of steps but a great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

In any town it is a good idea to get a birds eye view and in Porto this is the place to do it. There are a lot of stairs but it is worth it for the views. I would avoid crowds if you can as not much room when you are on the stairs or at the top.

“Another tower with great views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

The tower is a nice way to get to see the city from above. Not a terrible climb, nice views and not expensive. Put it on the list of things to do.

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

A wonderful opportunity to see the whole city of Porto. Climbing up the stone spiral stairs and seeing little peeps through the old gun slots and windows. The bell tower is fantastic and you can see right into it. Very loud if you are in the tower when they ring :)

“Torre dos Clerigos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We went there early in the morning. The number of visitors allowed into the tower at the same time is limited. Unfortunately the group filled before us so we had to wait some 10-15 minutes for our turn.
Favourite sight from the top is Vila Nova de Gaia with the wineries on the other side of the Douro river.

“Great views from the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Though we were in Porto on a hot October day, we enjoyed the climb and the view from the top of the tower. A good orientation to Porto and good exercise to boot.
