  • Place with amazing views, especially at night. Overlooking Porto and Gaia. Recommend a visit!

  • In January, I went to the opening. I was alone, and it feels wonderful. The view of the city in the mist, and this beautiful building, worth the trip. There are discounts for PRMS, 50 ct entry. You have a nice movie to watch. There is not a lot of objects and statues in the courtyard of the cloister, but it is a beautiful and charming place. I still remember, this turtledove who drank in the central fountain. The adjoining Church is round, beautiful. The staff is nice.

  • Information on the monuments of Northern Portugal with the possibility to visit part of the monastery. The cloister is unique because, as well as the Church. The 11:30 could go up to the dome, and enjoy beautiful views of Porto and Gaia.

  • Great place to visit on the south bank of the river, just across the D Luis Bridge. It very nice place with high views over Gaia that really worth going there, by foot or by telepheric from Cais de Gaia
  • 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!
  • Probably, one of the best place with amazing view at the city and the D. Luis bridge. And the architecture is very interesting itself, especially at night with all the lights.
  • View is amazing and unlike any other. However, don't bother paying to go inside, as it is mainly closed with little not being used by the active military now.
  • 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.
