Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), Porto

4.2
Visit Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), one of the country's prime Romanesque monuments, featuring two square towers supported by a counterfort, a baroque porch, and a gothic chapel. Apart from being the largest church, this cathedral is also among the oldest monuments in the city. The site served as a wedding spot of King John I, and Prince Henry the Navigator was baptized at the site. Dating back to the 12th century, the structure you see today was finalized in 1737. See its Gothic cloisters featuring blue and white Baroque tiles, check out an art collection within, and look for the silver-adorned altarpiece held in the chapel.

  • Impresses by size, beauty, architecture, style. It is the most important religious monument in Porto. It's worth the visit.

  • Make sure to visit early after opening as tour groups flock to this attraction. Many interesting rooms and good exhibits. Take the steps up the tower for good views of the city.  more »

  • Another beautiful church. Vastly overdone with gold leaf and alters that needed to be set in a much larger church. The cast bronze relief located just inside the main entrance, from an unknown artist, is worth viewing however. Stunning.
  • Beautiful church, amazing views after walking to the top. Lots of people doing the same thing but hey, that's what you get when you are a tourist! Highly recommended to do but a few steps to climb and tight squeezes
