Owner description: 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.

“Impressive from outside, great to climb it and enjoy the views from inside”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

At least you have to see it from a distance when you visit Porto. Then, if you are in decent shape and are not oversized (the winding stairs are long, narrow and steep), it is worth the effort to climb to the top and enjoy the views of Porto from it.

“Great view of Porto”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Climbing the tower is not an easy task, but when you reach the top the view of the city makes the effort worth it. The entrance costs 2 Euros and after climbing it, you can go and see the church which is in the same building.
