The Clerigos Tower is an absolute gem in the city of Porto. The visit was surely worth it as you can see a great view of the city from above especially on a good weather day. However, as it was a very busy day, we...More

The Clerigos Tower is one of the best places to look out over Porto (I'd recommend Miradouro da Serra do Pilar, at Jardim do Morro, as well). The entry cost was cheap just €5 each, and that gets you into the church which is nice...More

A must see for those visiting Porto. You won't want to miss the beautiful sights at the top. Walls are narrow but overall it's an easy and quick climb. Very safe! x

Well worth the visit, great views from the tower, and the church is also impressive. It's a bit squeezy going up the steps but okay if you take your time.

It is a long wait and you pay a fee to go into the building. You pay and then get to walk through the church itself. After waiting for about an hour we walked up to the top of the tower. There are two viewing...More

Great area close to all tourist places to see. It is the highest point in Porto. There is a great big Porto sign behind to take pictures.

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.
