It's worth walking up the tour just for the view of Porto from the top. A morning or evening visit would be ideal, but walking it in the afternoon wasn't too bad. There is some historical stuff inside, but I didn't spend any time there.

Interesting museum and great views. A way to get the history in an entertaining fashion. Walk up with care. There is no Health and Safety so take walking shoes.

Oh yes, and it is not cheap. There many other places with spectecular views around the coast that come for free. Porto is a tourist trap to be avoided in holiday months
