Climb to the top of Torre dos Clerigos, an iconic symbol of the city. This tower behind the Clérigos Church was built in the mid-18th century. Its design contains aspects of Roman Baroque architecture, though it is modeled after Tuscan-style bell towers. While this structure can be seen from various places in the city--making it one of the most recognized sites of Porto and a compass for lost travelers--you can't fully experience the tower until you ascend the 240 steps to its peak. Once you reach the top of this six-floor trek, you will be rewarded with incredible views of the ancient city.

Torre dos Clerigos reviews
Definitely worth visiting! This is an excllent viewpoint to admire the city of Porto. It also has a museum and you can also visit the church. Best to plan at least an hour. more »
Religion is not only the Rock of European Culture but is also Patron of the Beautiful Ornate Architecture of the Historic Heritage more »
Go later in the day to avoid large crowds.
It’s a central landmark in the city - 5€ to go up to the tower and it gets very busy during the day, so I recommend either go during morning (as early as possible) or around lunch. It’s very beautiful and the tower has a good view over the city. Definitely one thing to do in Porto and also close to the HP library.
