As churches go, this one is nice and airy but not necessarily the most interesting in Porto. However there is a daily 20-25 minute pipe organ concert at 12:00 really worth the visit. Moreover it is free. Info on the daily program can be found on the Torre de Clérigos website.

The chapel, laying next to the amazing Clerigos tower, is definitely worth to watch before climbing the tower.

The church occupies the lower floors of dos Clerigos Tower. The place is very interesting to show the vistors the wood carving objects, the uniforms of clericks and paintings of daily life in Porto in old times.

Attached to the Clerigos Tower, the Church of Sao Pedro is a beautiful jewel box of a cathedral, and a lovely place to grab a few minutes of reflection. Walk through the chapel to the robing room and on to the gift shop.

Not only a great place to see...the best surprise was they play the church organ each day and it's a fantastic place with a circle structure to maximise the listening experience!

Great for the views, but I was not expecting to tour a beautiful church. I enjoyed this more than others that had a higher profile.

This place has to be visited in the same time than the clerigos tower. Architecture is so nice and you can walk up along th two sides of the Church to have a view of th choir.

The interior of this church is absolutely stunning the intricate detail throughout has to be seen. The ticket also gives access to the cloisters which has many empty graves which can be a bit spooky.
