Clerigos Tower, Porto

(4.4/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
Climb to the top of Clerigos Tower, 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.

  • View from the tower is one Guidebook, such as street, 360-degree vantage point often wonderful stuff. Narrow aisles to climb the Tower, passing for uplink and downlink with differences difficult. Especially fat people passing on the stairs tower at the top of any passing differences, takes special consideration, the difference. Top 階屋 top roofs without rain note also, on the top floor 奥上 of the row below the roof available and percent vacant.

  • Porto's landmark clock tower goes up stairs very narrow one of the elevator, of course. Although it is not a very high tower in a place where you can see at a glance, Porto, worth, and the clock tower and the Cathedral is a place where the atmosphere up.

  • 3€ fee gives you access to the tower with all the great views of Porto. Just be prepared to walk all the way up, in tight spaces. Lots of exhibits with many relics and many portraits of the priests/monks who have served in this church. The walk up to the top is not the for weak, but worth the climb !
  • Nice tower, the climb cost just 3€ (very affordable) an the view over Porto is very nice. You can take nice pictures on the top (see GMaps).
  • Only 3 EUR for a fantastic view of Porto and a really interesting and creepy museum of pure evil (Christianity at its finest, with greed, torture, and gluttony), totally worth it. Also a great place to cool down in the hot summer days.
  • Nice place to visit. Breathtaking view of the Oporto city
  • The tower doesn't look that tall, but is 246 ft. high (about 24 floors high). One of the tallest buildings in Portugal. Climbing exhausted 240 steps to have superb views of the City, river, coast line and the valley. It is well worth.
