    Stop At: Torre dos Clerigos, Rua Sao Filipe Neri, Porto 4050-546 Portugal

    In the year 1753, at the request of the Brotherhood of Clerics, Nicolau Nasoni presented the project for a bell tower for the Clérigos group, which would replace the two towers initially planned for the side façades of the church. In the following year, work began on what would become "the most beautiful and towering Tower, dominating the entire urban landscape of Porto".

    In addition to serving as a bell tower, this building had other uses over the years: it served to mark the time (through a daily shot of dry powder that marked noon); he was a commercial telegraph; it was used as a guideline for vessels sailing on the Douro River; served to raise a flag when the "packet" arrived so that traders would know about its approach; it was a strategic point for military and political combat; and today it is undoubtedly one of the most important tourist attractions in the city of Porto.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), Terreiro Se, Porto 4050-573 Portugal

    It began to be built in the first half of the 12th century, and continued until the beginning of the 13th century. This first building, in Romanesque style, has undergone many changes over the centuries. The general character of the facade dates back to the Romanesque period, with the towers and the beautiful rose window, as well as the body of the three-nave church covered by a cannon vault.

    The exterior of the Cathedral was much modified in the Baroque era. Around 1736, the Italian architect Nicolau Nasoni added a beautiful Baroque galilee to the side facade of the Cathedral. Around 1772 a new portal was built to replace the original Romanesque. The balustrades and domes of the towers are also Baroque.
