Its cloister is very beautiful and has as decoration on the walls the typical blue tiles of Portugal. From its exterior you can see a very beautiful view of Porto and the Douro
Построенный в 12-м веке, собор претерпел важные изменения в 17-м и 18-м веках. Обратите внимание на его розетку 13 века. Часовня Святого Причастия имеет очень привлекательный алтарь. more »Built in the 12th century, the cathedral underwent important changes in the 17th and 18th centuries. Notice its 13th century outlet. The Chapel of Holy Communion has a very attractive altar.
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
