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.
