See its Gothic cloisters featuring blue and white Baroque tiles, check out an art collection within, and look for the silver-adorned altarpiece held in the chapel.

Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) reviews
Definitely worth visiting and paying the entrance fees. The cathedral is beautiful with its cloister and azulejos. You'll enjoy the views from its top. I can only recommend to spend 45 minutes or so..... more »

I loved it. The church is small but it has the treasure and many tiles. The cloister. And the tower has an incredible view of the city. around the cathedral there were musicians that made the climate wonderful.
A very nice and quiet cathedral. We went during the day and were the only people inside. A single entry ticket gets you access to everything including the towers and museum. Great viewpoint for taking pictures just outside the cathedral as well.
