Yes this Miradouro is one of the best in Porto for its views and you will not be disappointed by the photo opportunities it provides. And also you will experience some of the fantastic narrow streets of old Porto to find it. But as Miradouro’s go it’s a bit shabby, being just a large concrete platform with no facilities ( bars or cafes) in an area still containing several derelict buildings. I’m sure that will change as the renovation of Old Porto continues but in the meantime for a spot to view the setting sun of an evening
I would recommend Passeio das Virtudes to the west of the Old Town with its tree shaded green space and bars, restaurants and cafes.

We reached this stunning viewpoint during part of our free Sandeman Walking Tour of Porto and what a wonderful spot to take in the sweeping views over the rooftops and down towards the river Douro.
We were told by our guide that this formed part of the old Jewish quarter. While in a dilapidated and uncared-for setting, this only added to the charm. Fortunately it wasn't crowded during our visit and when we returned later on during our stay it was even less busy.

Just 7 min walking distance from Igreja do Carmo. This walk itself is a treat which takes you through a small local neighbourhood. When you reach at Miradouro da Vitoria you find a hidden secret of sorts. The views of Porto are great, with a long balcony to find a comfortable spot to see the city, and so it does not get crowded here. The spot itself is not well maintained and neglected, surrounded by dilapidated buildings. Go there for the views only.
Climbing down you reach Mercado Ferreira Borges and then reach the main riverside promenade in 10 min.

We rented an apartment very close to here, so we passed this lovely viewpoint many times. It was often busy with lots of folks thoroughly enjoying the spectacular views of the whole region. One of the best places to get a perspective on Porto.

Contrary to the capital, Porto doesn't have so much Miradouros, but this one is just perfect.
It is set some 10 min walking downhill from the famous Clerigos tower and Church. Therefore, no need to climb the tower, pay for it and wait in lines.
Miradouro da Vitoria is a wide plateau and there're no crowds and is of course free.

It is a bit of a walk to get here through the city's historic quarter, but luckily for me I was staying nearby anyway. Like the other miradors around the city (and there are many) the views are amazing - get here early for the sunrise or late for the sunset and you won't be disappointed.

A Stunning ‘miradora’ is this! The view/scenery takes you’re breath away as you are higher than most of the roof tops looking over the city, the river, the main iron bridge and port distilleries. There are no facilities - it is a very simple area to stand where the views say it all. A spot to head for, for those most of scenic of photos!

Didn't know this existed and just stumbled on it whilst meandering along the old streets taking a wide walk out to the right of Porto on the way down towards the river. Its just a piece of land belonging to a very old dilapidated house that would make a fantastic Hotel. The views of Porto in my opinion are the best available and its all free, you kist have to barge selfie/instagrammers out of the way in order to drink in the sight. Should be higher up the list

if it is not the very best view in Porto then it is in the top 3 for sure. Easily accessible if you go down from city center (i.e. Pedro 4th monument or area around it). Note that if you want to go down from this view to the river then some maps show connecting streets that go down - do not fall for it. Other maps properly show that there are fairly long STEPS that go down. That is OK as long as you do not try to come up to this location from Ribeira (from the river) - unless you want to exercise strenuously. If you stay in Ribeira and want to get to this view by walking - go up by Sao Joao, then Flores (and see San Bento station walls inside!) then turn left and walk Clerigos and again left on Rua Sao Bento da Vitoria to the view

* The Miradouro da Vitoria is somewhat tucked away behind the otherwise not interesting church Igreja Paroquial da Vitória.
* You would be in that area because: there are some more interesting churches in the street leading up to the viewpoint: the church/Igreja de São José das Taipas and the Igreja de São Bento da Vitória (classified as a National Monument). - check Google Maps.
- Continue your journey taking the stairs down to Rua de Belmonte, and follow the road to the Palácio de São João Novo at the Largo São João Novo square (and admire that church from above taking the stairs next to it).. It's a pretty picturesque short walk.

Enjoy!
