Reading in Lifecooler that:

"Porto Cathedral is the cradle of the city, which has developed from here. It is a must-see monument, because of its artistic treasures. Built in the 12th century in Romanic style, the cathedral has deeply changed throughout time. The facade has two towers and in the middle of them, a rose window. In the inside, the naves have a vault shape. At the en of the central nave, you will find the high choir, illuminated by a Gothic style rose window. The main chapel was built in the 17th century in classic style, dominated by marbles of several colours. The urn with the remains of Holy São Pantaleão, city patron saint, is also a peculiar note worth highlighting."

... I must be ashamed! I only saw it from distance. To be honest, I visited it more than 30 years ago, but forgot what I saw. Of course, it will be a priority in my next visit to Porto.
