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.

  • Cathedral located on top of the hill overlooking Porto so it’s nice to take pictures. 3euro to enter and all captions are in Portuguese. There’s no map so just follow the flow. It has different rooms....  more »
  • Good value. Only 3 euros and plenty to see. Would recommend. Also take a walk around the side streets nearby for authentic Porto architecture  more »

  • I loved it. The church is small but it has the treasure and many tiles. The cloister. And the tower has an incredible view of the city. around the cathedral there were musicians that made the climate wonderful.
  • A very nice and quiet cathedral. We went during the day and were the only people inside. A single entry ticket gets you access to everything including the towers and museum. Great viewpoint for taking pictures just outside the cathedral as well.
