Clérigos Tower


This ex-libris of the city of Porto built in the century. XVIII is known for the panoramic view that we can contemplate when climbing the spiral staircase that characterizes the Clérigos Tower.

The Clérigos architectural ensemble, classified as a National Monument since 1910, is by its Church and its Tower, one of the main points of interest, and a must for all visitors to the city of Porto.

The Church and the Tower are part of an 18th-century Baroque-inspired building that marked the city's urban setting, located on an uneven street but brilliantly exploited by Nicolau Nasoni , who managed to create a landmark building. The Church and the Tower are united by the House of the Brotherhood, which since 2014, after its musealization, is open to the public.


If climbing this 240-step staircase is not part of your plans, enter one of the rooms that recreates the visitor's feeling of being at the top of the building: real-time imagery gives the tower's height a feel, while still offering touch screen displays. ringtone that give the visitor a wealth of information about what they are seeing
