Porto's Clerigos Tower: a Portuguese soundmark

Aug 15, 09:56 AM

The Clerigos Tower is one of the best-known sites in Porto, but also provides one of the city's key soundmarks. Three times every day, the array of bells in the tower performs a different melodic song, with the bells ringing out for six or seven minutes at a time, right across the old city. This recording was taken during the 6pm bell session.
