Sé do Porto

The Cathedral (Sé) is the main church of the city of Porto. It was erected in the 12th and 13th centuries. The first mass was held in the year 1120. In the thirteenth century, changes were made that completely altered the main portal. Reconstructed in Baroque style, it has kept only the rosette of its original construction. Nicolau Nasoni was the author of a galilee on the north facade and also intervened in the decoration of the sacristy. The interior conserves the images of Our Lady of Vandoma (14th century), the "silver altar", an important Gothic cloister, the "old cloister", the chapel of St. Vincent, a noble staircase that allows access to the upper patio of the Gothic cloister, and the "casa do cabido", which houses remarkable religious sculptures from the 14th and 18th centuries. Contemplate the Treasure of the Cathedral, made up of 150 cult implements, vestments, silverware and liturgical books from the 15th to the 19th centuries.
