Clérigos Tower is the foremost undisputed landmark of Porto and a reference in the city's history. Clérigos Tower opened its doors in 1763, becoming the highest bell tower of Portugal, with over 75 metres. In 1753 the Italian architect Nicolau Nasoni was invited to design and build this magnificent Heritage, considered National Monument since 1910. The famous church was built in the eighteenth century, between 1732 and 1749 and this was the most emblematic work of the architect Nicolau Nasoni. Is one of the most beautiful temples of baroque feature, and a reference in the history of Porto. The Exhibitions allow to discover the history of the Brotherhood of Clérigos, admire pieces from the eighteenth to the nineteenth century, in painting, furniture, jewellery and vestment collections. Christus collection, on the 3 floor, is a trip through time and space where art and religion complement each other.

This and the church are a great visit. No student's discount in Portugal unfortunately. But this is a good experience.

Well I did not think that the view would be this good. It is quite a tall building. However you have to walk through the stairs. So elders and disabled will not be able to use it. The view is very nice and ultra panoramic....More

Clerigos is a great landmark when travelling in Porto. The inside is beautiful. There are various souveniers shops along side Clerigos. This is worth a visit, but not a lot of time is required to spend here.

We spent 2 hours looking at the church and tower. Climbing the tower took time (15 minutes) because of people volume. Hust have to be patient.
