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.

  • Beautiful building, but falls short of other cathedrals in Europe. Given the issues surrounding the Catholic church, they should look at dropping the entrance price or offer guided tours that share better insight to the history of Catholicism. You get more out of the view from the outside than you do from what you see inside.
  • Very very beautiful cathedral. Definitely worth it to be visit if You are in Porto. Romanesque (dated for the XII century) architecture combined with unique Portuguese influence makes it one of a kind. One of my most favourite places in Porto
