To have a look at this Genovese tower and enjoy the views of Porto. Museum visit is questionable. Changing colour at night.

It's worth walking up the tour just for the view of Porto from the top. A morning or evening visit would be ideal, but walking it in the afternoon wasn't too bad. There is some historical stuff inside, but I didn't spend any time there.

Very nice and unique view of Porto bay. Count 2,5€/person which is very correct considering that you help the people of Porto preserving the place. Included an access to a small museum.

The entry fee is very modest, so no excuse to not climb this tower. The view is excellent and inside the tower you'll find lots of information about its turbulent history.

Take this easy hike when it's too windy to take a boat. Great view on the waves approaching the coast.

Interesting museum and great views. A way to get the history in an entertaining fashion. Walk up with care. There is no Health and Safety so take walking shoes.

Nice easy hike to tower, which does offer great views all around. The tower itself is rather unimpressive inside, though there is some information on the towers. As for the brier wood museum... that's for real professionals. At a small 2.50 euros however makes it...More

Oh yes, and it is not cheap. There many other places with spectecular views around the coast that come for free. Porto is a tourist trap to be avoided in holiday months
