“Great view”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Situated on the top of a small hill, a rather typical cathedral, not very characteristic of the architecture of the other churches in Porto. It worth the visit and it offers a great view of different parts of the city.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

You can see the cathedral from the river. It's stunning inside with a beautiful cloisters to the side. The day we visited, there were communions going on. It was lovely to see the cathedral being used for its purpose. Definitely worth a look.

“Beautiful start to our Camino”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We started our Camino pilgrimage from Porto so we had to get our credential stamped at the cathedral. The walk up was well worth the effort as the views one can see of the river Douro and the city were amazing.

“Beautiful Cathedral, in wonderful setting”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

A walk to the Cathedral is well worth the effort, with fantastic views over the Douro river and beyond. The area itself is wonderful, with stone landmarks and cobbles, ancient streets. A lovely area to pass half an hour or so.
