  • Unfortunately we could not enjoy the church as there was a wedding going on exactly when we arrived, but just the view was enough to justify going up the hill 
  • Large monastic complex then military fortress. Very interesting architecture that is visible from any part of the long river side Ribeira. The views are great. A small part of the monastery houses a small museum on the unesco world heritage site of Porto. It's worth really. Within an original round cloister.

  • The monastery is beautiful and your patio has a great view to the port and the River Douro. Climbed by taxi because it is very steep. Worth the visit.

  • One of the best places to see the great city of Porto. Is located in Gaia, near the D. Luis bridge, so you must stop by before/after crossing the bridge. You have lot´s of room to take great photos and just chill looking at the sights. On a good weather day you can see as far as the sea!
  • The view from here is amazing and the cool breeze makes it very comfortable to just relax there. I wasn't actually inside the monetary, but I have heard great things.
  • Great views over the city
  • Great place to relax
  • Pretty views of the city from a high vantage point.
