This is one of the best churches in Porto. While in Portugal, it is difficult to say, which is the best! walking distance from the centre of the town, no entrance fee and exquisite interiors, a must visit.

The cathedral is a nice place to visit. I think it was 5 Euros to go in and worth the price. I would give yourself 30 min to an hour max to explore.

I've been past this cathedral many times and have always admired its beauty. It's really worth a visit and the views of the river and walk down to it from the cathedral are nothing short of stunning!

We visited the Cathedral yesterday. It was pleasant enough but the lady selling the tickets was extremely rude!! After our visit I found that I’d lost my scarf so went back to ask if it had been found. She was so impolite saying she didn’t...More

For €3, you get to visit the cloisters, main and side chapels, treasure room, sacristy and view the stunning azulejo tiling. It’s a lot more interesting on the inside than it might appear from outside and the views from the terrace are phenomenal.

We just walked up to the cathedral. Line wasn’t bad at all. You only pay if you want to see More than the main sanctuary.
