View point - Terreiro da Sé

Destaque
Photo:
  • The Terreiro da Sé (square), framed by the buildings of the Cathedral, the Chapter House, the Bishop's Palace and the former City Hall (Casa da Câmara), is the result of the recovery works that took place in 1940, through which several medieval quarters were demolished to give way to an open square, where a stone monument representing local government (pelourinho) was placed in 1945, by the Porto City Council. From this spot one can admire the complete Barredo area, the river Douro and Vila Nova de Gaia.
