Create an itinerary including Torre dos Clerigos
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.

  • A cool tower with a magnificent church and nice museum inside. Climbing up to the tower you can see the city with a 360 degree view. However, the information board is incorrect in stating that Taipei 101 is in China. It is In Taipei, Taiwan. 🇹🇼
  • Full 360° view on the entire city at the highest point. The tower is 76m tall and you'll have to climb it all by stairs. You get to visit the entire church and all the rooms. The church itself is nice but not as impressive as all other churches in the city. The visit is totally worth it just for the tower, go for it.
