Going up this tower was easy and inexpensive. You will need to wind up stairs to get to the top but the view was worth the trip. I waited in line for about 30 minutes. The triumphal arch near the water is the one you...More

Apart from the Ponte de Dom Luis the Torre dos Clerigos offers some of the best views of Porto. Entrance to the tower takes you on a roundabout way though a small museum, around the upper level of the Clerigos Church then finally to the...More

The views from the top of the Torre are amongst the finest in Porto, so it is worth the small charge and the climb (147 steps we were told!) to the top of the tower. The architecture inside the church with impressive balcony views as...More

The place has a very nice interior and exterior design. The church there is free to visit and definitely worth it. Around noon they have a music performance for 5 minutes. The tower though is not free to visit.

You have the 360-degree view of the city. And the ocean looks amazing from here. Be prepared to climb loads of steps.

The city of Porto is more than the "Torre dos Clérigos ". Those who visit the city know this. However the "Clerigos" is a symbol and an identity. The city of Porto is identified with the "Torre dos Clérigos". It deserves the visit to the...More

My wife and I were in Porto for a week in May and visited the church tower climb. Costing 5 euro each, I would not recommend it. It was very disorganised. The stairs up were extremely narrow in sections and there was hardly enough room...More

It’s best to go in the morning to avoid queuing. Be there just before the tower opens. BR, Anna-Kaisa

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.
