You can see for yourself the luxury, the bishops of Porto allow themselves with a guided tour inside. The tour begins at the heart of the building, the magnificent monumental granite staircase, festooned with carved religious iconography. The tour proceeds into the Hall of Mirrors, the Coat of Arms and the Chapel, until you reach the Audience Hall, which is still utilised today by Porto's Bishop. From the windows in this room, you can marvel at the views of the Cathedral terrace outside.
Continue on to the Throne Room (Sala do Trono), the walls, carpet and furnishings are strikingly red before entering the room which houses temporary exhibitions. Before leaving you're guided to a gallery that overlooks Porto, Vila Nova de Gaia, the Luiz I Bridge and the River Douro and rewards the visitor with amazing vistas.
