Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) Reviews
Impressiona pelo tamanho, beleza, arquitetura, estilo.É o monumento religioso mais importante de Porto. Vale a pena a visita. more »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
