Church and tower of dos Clérigos

This Baroque church built between 1735 and 1748 by the architect Nasoni, dominates the busy street of the same name. It is looked down on by a tower, over 75m high, Porto's most well-known monument, which used to serve as a guide for the ships. From the top there is a panoramic view extending over the city, the cathedral, the Douro and the wine stores.
