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
Por ser local turistico, cobra-se entrada por pessoa e enfrenta-se fila... Acabamos não visitando o local no dia. more »Because it is a tourist site, it is charged to enter per person and faces the queue... We ended up not visiting the place on the day.
Башня-колокольня Клеригуш возвышается над морем крыш центра Порту, и не посетить такую прекрасную смотровую площадку кажется немыслимым кощунством. Впрочем, это сопряжено со стоянием в очереди не мене... more »The tower-belfry of clerigush rises above the sea of the roofs of the centre of Porto, and not to visit such a beautiful observation deck seems inconceivable blasphemy. However, it involves standing in the queue for at least an hour (or two). At the cost of a visit of 5 euros could be put the traffic controller-a spiral staircase in the thickness of the stone to rise to the upper level of the bell tower is very narrow, and when oncoming traffic some people just get stuck, which is very slow the rest Tourists. The top view is beautiful, as with any bell tower of any medieval cathedral in any south-European city.
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!
Such a stunning building. Definitely worth the visit in and the walk up to the top. Great views of Porto. Gets busy, so be prepared to wait awhile. Also. Quite small stairways - so if you're claustrophobic, maybe give this one a miss.
