Time Out says

The Serra do Pilar is a jagged hill over the Douro river on the Gaia side. Needless to say, the view is spectacular, especially when the sun sets. It was a strategic location for the liberal party’s victory during the Siege of Porto (1832-1833). You can also visit the 13th century Monastery, where you may learn more about the four World Heritage sites in Portugal’s Northern region: the historic centers of Porto and Guimarães, the Douro wine region and the Côa Archaeological Park.
