The Clérigos Church boasts of its Baroque architecture, the marble altarpiece and the iconic bell tower, Torre dos Clerigos standing 75 metres tall, which is the symbol of Porto. Also known as the Church of the Clergymen, the construction of the church dates back to 1732. The Baroque motifs like shells and garlands on the front facade along with the broken pediment designed on the seventeenth century Roman Scheme are quite notable. The windows are made under the central frieze that feature the symbols of incense boat and worship while the elliptic floor plan of the nave is notable on the lateral facades of the Clérigos Church.

  • The line went by quickly. I met an amazing woman traveling alone. It’s nice to see older women taking this leap. I love these stories. You need to be in good shape to go up the stairs and the higher you go up, the more reduced in space there is.

  • Surely a piece of Porto worth visiting! The tower offers an unique view on the city and it is from above that you see its hilly nature best. Unfortunately, sue tonite popularity, the waiting times are quite long (circa 40 minutes) On the other hand, if you don't like climbing the stairs or the waiting in the line, you can visit the church. Altars are just fabulous! Parking is possible next to the church, the visit itself is suitable for most, maybe the tower is not for the little ones due to its height.

  • The church is very beautiful and you can freely walk around and even go to higher floors, so you can see the church from an upper view. The Tower had no queue when I went there and it's entrance covers a little museum further than the tower. When going up it was a bit narrow for me, so when other tourists were going down (it's the same way) we had to stick to the wall, but wasn't any troublesome...the great view from there makes it all worth!

  • Didn't go up the tower but visited the church. Entrance is free for the church but if you want to climb the 250+ steps of the tower, you'll need to buy a ticket. Apparently great views of the city. You can visit it by night as well from 19 to 23

  • It's a church that's well located and offers a great 360° view of the city. The sunset from the tower is really worth it.
