  • Especially take the option: climb in the tower because really there is the interest of this visit. An amazing view on Porto, more 360 °, really nice and a rise in a tiny staircase that will surely appeal to children.

  • Location overlooking the harbor is worth. The sunset in this place is stunning, with the whole vista of the river and the city.

  • 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.
