Sé Cattedrale di Oporto

Sé Cattedrale Di Oporto

Porto Region, PortugalBuilt in the 12th and 13th centuries, the Cathedral of Porto is a Romanian temple that has gone through various years of extensions and renovations. For example, the monastery and chapel of St. John the Evangelist were built in the Gothic style in the 14th century. The Chapel of the Holy Sacrament and its silver altar are examples of 17th-century manners. Instead, the Baroque is found in the apse frescoes and in the eighteenth-century sacristy, designed by Nicola Nasoni, who signed several papers in the city of Porto. From the same period, there are the tiles of the monastery, by Vital Rifarto. It is worth noting the work of Teixeira Lopes, a father in the chapel of baptism, an interesting 19th century bronze relief. From Terreiro da Sé, where the imposing cathedral stands, you can reach the Douro River and explore the historic city center. The cathedral is also the starting point for one of the variants of the Portuguese route on the Santiago route.
