Miradouro da Serra do Pilar

Considered to be one of the city’s ex-libris, the Serra do Pilar (and its typical church) is located at the city entrance, one of the highest places of Vila Nova de Gaia. The Convent, that no longer functions, belonged to the observing prebendary of Santo Agostinho, that occupied the place during the 16th century. In front of the church there’s a belvedere with one of the most beautiful panoramic views of Oporto.
