Porto. Igreja dos Clerigos

Clerigos Church
Among the works produced in the north of Portugal by the well-known Tuscan architect, Nicolau Nasoni, Clerigos Tower Church, built in the XVIII century, is not only his oldest documented building, but also the most famous. Images of the virtues of the Virgin Mary are clearly displayed in the church’s iconography, dedicated since its foundation to Our Lady of the Assumption. A must visit, together with the Clérigos Tower, the most emblematic monument in Porto, a magnificent construction of 75m in height and 240 spiral steps, leading you to a veranda at the top where you will find an amazing view of the city.

A beautiful street scene with the mix of modern buildings with the old, a lively scene with people and traffic. V.

The church is such a prominent feature in the city, right in the middle of the avenue like that. Gorgeous architecture.

I like how the residential buildings frame the church, which is also so nicely highlighted. V.
