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.

  • Visit also the park on the square beside the church and visit the local cafes and places to eat at great prices!

  • Having read the reviews I was unsure whether we should bother with the Tower but was glad we did. We queued for a short time around 4pm and were asked to come back for 5pm. Beautiful church interior.....  more

  • This is a beautiful church. There’s a light show happening after 5pm or so, which makes the whole place feel super special. All the details inside are just stunning. Highly recommend visiting
  • 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.
