Create an itinerary including Torre dos Clerigos
Climb to the top of Torre dos Clerigos, an iconic symbol of the city. This tower behind the Clérigos Church was built in the mid-18th century. Its design contains aspects of Roman Baroque architecture, though it is modeled after Tuscan-style bell towers. While this structure can be seen from various places in the city--making it one of the most recognized sites of Porto and a compass for lost travelers--you can't fully experience the tower until you ascend the 240 steps to its peak. Once you reach the top of this six-floor trek, you will be rewarded with incredible views of the ancient city.

  • Gridlock. Our visit was one of the first time slots of the day. One could not move up or down or around. We stood for over 15 minutes at one point in the stairway. Talk about a massive COVID risk...

  • The museum is as expected, especially when compared to similar attractions. You first enter and go through the building In a maze form (with directions) lots of information and historical rooms and places. I went for the view at the top.... very good. Well worth it. You will get a few steps in as well 😁. Recommended.
  • A cool tower with a magnificent church and nice museum inside. Climbing up to the tower you can see the city with a 360 degree view. However, the information board is incorrect in stating that Taipei 101 is in China. It is In Taipei, Taiwan. 🇹🇼
