Definitely worth visiting and paying the entrance fees. The cathedral is beautiful with its cloister and azulejos. You'll enjoy the views from its top. I can only recommend to spend 45 minutes or so there.

The exterior looked nice! After seeing a lovely picture and a girl I’m following on IG, I knew Se Cathedral has to be on my Porto-visiting-list, but as we were somehow in a rush, we only got to see this beautiful building’s exterior. Now seeing other pictures of how it looks inside, I kind of regret it - so my advice: take your time to check out its interior too.

The cathedral had been on our bucket list for years, but we never quite got around to it. From the outside it is not much to look at. Almost a granite fortress rather then a place of worship. Looks are deceptive. The €3 admission is very cheap, particularly by U.K. cathedral standards. Baroque is not normally our bag. However, this is baroque on steroids. The main altar is stupendous. Crammed with little chapels dedicated to various saints. Each one a work of art in its own right. Because of the lack of tourists in the Covid world we could wander at our own pace and really look at the details ad admire the workmanship that had gone into each place. Because of Covid there was a one way system in place and masks were compulsory. There were hand sanitizer stations not only at the entrance, but at regular intervals around the building.

Beautiful, amazing, tremendous and etc. You should visit it! Beautiful architecture, azuleju, amazing view to the city (and many stairs before you get there).
