By climbing up to the top of the Tower Igreja dos Clerigos you give yourself brilliant views of the coty of Porto. A nice climb of 200 steps to the top of the tower

"This architectonic whole was built between 1732 and 1763, by initiative of the Poor Clergymen Brotherhood. The plan was ordered to the Italian architect Nicolau Nasoni. The church’s façade is profusely decorated with baroque elements and the interior has rich wood engravings. The tower is regarded as one of Nasoni’s masterpieces thanks to its harmonious proportions and to its decorative richness, and it became one of Porto’s ex libris."
