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
Stand alone tower, in the city centre is another iconic view of Porto city and yes it is worth to visit. Climb on the top and observe the old and beautiful city. more »
Tower has a lovely square in front and also there is a nice park nearby. From the top it offers nice panoramic view on the City. 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.
