Porto Cathedral

The Cathedral of Porto, or Sť do Porto, is the most important Romanesque building in the country. Established first in 1110 AD at the site of the Suevi dominion bishopric of the 4th century it is today visited by worshipers from all over the Catholic domain. The building seen today was completed in in 1737.

Located above the city it offers outstanding views over the buildings below and of the river.  Either walk up the hill or take a taxi there to save your legs and then enjoy the views from outside before entering to see the important architecture inside.

With a solid silver alter and many of the traditional timework features for while Portugal is rightly famed in evidence all around it is a great place to visit.

Entry is free though a small charge is made to go into the Cloisters.
