Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), Porto

4.2
Visit Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), one of the country's prime Romanesque monuments, featuring two square towers supported by a counterfort, a baroque porch, and a gothic chapel. Apart from being the largest church, this cathedral is also among the oldest monuments in the city. The site served as a wedding spot of King John I, and Prince Henry the Navigator was baptized at the site. Dating back to the 12th century, the structure you see today was finalized in 1737. See its Gothic cloisters featuring blue and white Baroque tiles, check out an art collection within, and look for the silver-adorned altarpiece held in the chapel.

  • But on the Hill atop of Porto. A lovely tranquil place with a large square. The Cathedral is plain in comparison to others in Porto, but is still beautiful in its own way. Certainly well worth a visit...  more »
  • It's a cathedral in multi styles: Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque. Go and look at. For a few euros, you can visit the cloister, ride on the terrace decorated with panels of faience blue representing religious scenes and giving a view of the city. You can also visit the sacristy, which is of great interest. There are fewer people for paying parties. Do not hesitate to pass in front of the Cathedral at different times of the day, for changes in color of the stones
