Porto Cathedral is the city’s largest place of worship. It was built around the 12th century but significant renovations of the facade have taken place since then. And although the Cathedral is identified as a fine example of Romanesque design, it embodies an eclectic mix of Gothic, Baroque and Romanesque architecture.

  • One of the most magnificent parts of the Porto Cathedral is the silver altarpiece in the Chapel of the Holy Sacrament.
  • Even though the design and structure of the Porto Cathedral has been altered over the centuries, the Gothic rose window of the edifice is a beautiful remnant of the original structure. 

The main architectural changes were made to the building during the 18th century. These were also some of the most priceless additions to the Cathedral from an aesthetics point of view. A loggia was added to the north side. Several beautiful ‘Azulejo’ (blue and white tiles native to art and architecture in Portugal and Spain) were chosen to decorate the Gothic cloisters of the cathedral and depict the life of the Virgin Mary.

The Cathedral terrace offers great views of Porto.
