While getting there you have a small museum, a church and overall the possibility to go up to the towers. From there you have a magnificent view over the city and the river. A must in Porto.

Even though I went there when it should be open, it was closed. Someone was blocking the doors from inside, and no where was written if it is just temporarely closed. The man didn't explain anything either.

The 2nd of an eyecatching beauty. Not necessary from outside but certainly when you enter the building. Won't take much out of your day but it may leave you slightly breathless.

Beautiful church, hidden from the main touristic places due to its somewhat secluded location. A must see. And getting there is also quite fun!

The church itself is maginficent and the square in front of it deserves a look. Start walking at the Sé Catedral and go down the stairs until you find it! After the visit, keep walking down through the little alleys that lead you to the...More
