* The Miradouro da Vitoria is somewhat tucked away behind the otherwise not interesting church Igreja Paroquial da Vitória. * You would be in that area because: there are some more interesting churches in the street leading up to the viewpoint: the church/Igreja de São...More

Very nice view on Porto and it's not hard to climb on it. Nice view on Douro River and Old Porto. Worth to see.

We were ambling through the back streets above our hotel and came across the viewpoint by chance. There was a guided walking tour there so we waited until they moved on and then took some photos.

Worth stopping and admiring the view if you are passing nearby. Obviously you need to walk up hill to get up here. Be prepared for a pleasant but hilly walk. Then enjoy the view!

We passed this spot rather by accident and enjoyed the wonderful view over the city, the Douro river and Vila Nova de Gaia. I would say this is more like a 'hidden spot', but certainly worth making the walk over there.

This vista point area sits behind a church. Beautiful view of the river and the red tile houses. A popular hangout for families on the weekend. It’s free. Expect a crowd especially on holidays.

From this viewpoint, Miradouro da Vitoria, you will have most of Porto's sights at once. You can see the Gaia district, the Dom Luis I bridge, Serra do Pilar, Sé Catedral and most of the historic centre. Maybe one of the best views of the...More

If you're making your way to the Ribeira from the Torre dos Clérigos, try to make your way through the area where this miradouro is. The streets around are also interesting so you won't be wasting time. From this spot you get a different view...More

The views which can be had of Porto from here aren't bad, but compared to the others which can be gotten from the bridgers and the other viewpoints, this fails in comparison. It's not normally busy and it's not too hard to get too, so...More
