“Best views of Porto from the top”
Review of Genoise Tower

Genoise Tower
Ranked #10 of 18 things to do in Porto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 September 2016

It's worth walking up the tour just for the view of Porto from the top. A morning or evening visit would be ideal, but walking it in the afternoon wasn't too bad. There is some historical stuff inside, but I didn't spend any time there.

Nice and quick walk to it , nice view, worth going for a morning or evening jog. In the noon can be a bit too hot...

This tower, as well as the path leading to it, offer amazing view of the Porto bay. I believe that the interior of the tower should offer more to the tourists e.g. art exhibitions (that is the reason that I am giving this sight a 4 star rating). However, just climbing up this little hill and tower is worth visiting. The best thing to do it Porto in my opinion. You just need to take time, calm down, enjoy the sights and take photos. There is entrance fee in amount of 2.5€.

Very nice and unique view of Porto bay.
Count 2,5€/person which is very correct considering that you help the people of Porto preserving the place. Included an access to a small museum.

The entry fee is very modest, so no excuse to not climb this tower. The view is excellent and inside the tower you'll find lots of information about its turbulent history.
