Full description
Experience one of Porto’s most iconic attractions at your own pace with an entrance ticket to the Torre dos Clérigos. Adjoining the baroque Igreja dos Clérigos, the Torre dos Clérigos, can be seen from various points in the city and is one of its most emblematic symbols.

Built for the Clérigos Brotherhood by Nicolau Nasoni, an Italian architect and painter responsible for a large body of work in the north of Portugal during the 18th century, construction of the church began in 1732 and was finished around 1750. The monumental divided stairway in front of the church was completed in the 1750s. The main façade is heavily decorated with baroque motifs.

Climb the monumental Bell Tower of the church for panoramic views across the entire city, and an up-close view of its most symbolic attraction. Then, go to the exhibition space in the Clerigos Building to admire the Irmandade dos Clérigos Collection and Christus Collection, where you can see pieces from the 18th and 19th centuries, including furniture, paintings and vestments.

The inside of the tower was absolutely beautiful and the view once at the top was beautiful as well! It’s a higher climb with the stairs being quite steep and tight at times. Once at the top the area outside is small so be prepared to be squished with others and to have to squeeze past people.

My husband and I entered the Torre dos Clerigos tower and exchanged our vouchers for tickets. First you start to climb stairs up and back down for a bit as you go around the church and view it from different angles. We thought that we would then directly enter the tower, as there appeared to be no wait. However, once we finally reached the tower entrance there was about a 20 minute wait before they let more people up, as we had to wait for some people to first come down. As all reviews that I've read say the climb up and down is very narrow. It is only one path to go both ways and you have to alternate as you let people go down as you are climbing up. Unfortunately we were only able to make it to the first view point, half way up the climb, as we factored in the time it would take to get all the way up at this point and having to get back down, and we were already leaving Porto to catch a flight back home that evening.

Pick up was punctual, our guide Ivo was very knowledgeable and funny. The wineries we visited were great, and the lunch was beautiful (in a new, beautifully decorated restaurant). There was a lot packed into the day, including lots of wine, and I found it to be excellent value for money
