Torre dos Clerigos, Porto

4.3
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.

  • Must visit Historic site.. For the views and pictures Almost 300 steps tower If crowded.. bad Church inside with self guided art tour  more »
  • Really irritates me when a place like this for iced you to pay cash for the entry fee but is more than happy to accept cards in the gift shop. Of course they only tell you this once you’ve queued to.....  more »
  • It was amazing. Incredible viewing. Stay prepared it is a bit high with a lot of stairs. Good to arrive 50 min before you want to be there because of huge queue  more »

  • It’s a central landmark in the city - 5€ to go up to the tower and it gets very busy during the day, so I recommend either go during morning (as early as possible) or around lunch. It’s very beautiful and the tower has a good view over the city. Definitely one thing to do in Porto and also close to the HP library.
  • This is a beautiful and well maintained church with a high tower that has good views of Porto. The tower gets busy during the day and to avoid crowds it is best to go before 10AM. the tower is also ope in the evening for night visits.
  • Worth the steep climb!
  • Beautiful place, lot of people but great!
  • A truly beautiful church. Magnificent structure and magnificent religious art. Curiously, it managed to seem.quite low key at the same time.
