It was built next to Igreja dos Clérigos (also designed by Nasoni a few decades prior). It has two pipe organs and gold leaf decorations. The organ pipes are still in use, and there’s a concert at midday every day. Even if it’s quite touristy, most locals have climbed the Tower at least once (I’ve climbed it thrice!) and enjoyed the rare view of the city.
