Description

It is for brave, but worth it- after climbing the about 240 steps up to 2 balconies, on top of the tower, you can enjoy a panoramic 360 ° views of the city and the Douro River. So, find your rhythm, but do not miss this. For those who have accessibility difficulties there is a set of multi-sensory perception, which simulates the experience and the feelings of those who climbs the tower, making this comprehensive and interactive space.The complex consists of the Church of the Clergy, the House of the Brotherhood and the Tower of the Clerics. It is a baroque work of the century XVIII, designed by the architect Nasoni, who is buried in the church. It is considered a National Monument since 1910. The church is in granite, stone typical of northern Portugal. It has a single nave and several rococo detail in the decor. The House of the Brotherhood is now a small museum, housing a collection Christus. It gives access to areas that were once private, like the Main Hall. Is the link between the church and the tower. The tower, 75 meters high, comprises 6 floors. It has two bell towers, and since 1995 a carillon with 49 bells, one of the largest in Portugal, touching several hours. Can be visited until 23h, is a day and night viewing point of the city. Tips for those on the Tower- (1) Take warm clothes as there are open windows, the stairs, and, with time, more wind. (2) If you are on top of the tower when the bells ring, get ready for a very high-pitched sound – it’s nice to hear the bells being here below, before or after climbing. (3) The stairs are narrow and a rise while others fall. Be careful, especially when transporting children on your body. (4) If you like to shoot or be photographed, enjoy. The view is fantastic. and (5) Since the Tower has several floors, you can get some rest while visit.
