  • one of the most beautiful views over Porto and its bridge. We also visited the cloister of the monastery (one of the few circular cloisters). Little pricey (€1) but not of great interest.

  • The view from the top of the Serra do Pilar is sensational! Yields beautiful photos and is a great place to enjoy the ribeira do Porto without haste.

  • Cross the Luis I bridge. Then enter 100 meters into Villanova da Gaia to left hand reach the monastery of Serra de Pilar. There we can see the monastery and spectacular views of Porto, Villanova and the estuary. Essential!

  • 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.
