This is the main hub of the historic centre of Porto, topped by the Town Hall and framed by the most traditional commercial area of the city.
Nearby, Café Majestic is a must see.

Lello Bookshop

Known the world over, among other reasons, for its staircases that inspired the author of Harry Potter, Lello is considered one of the best and most beautiful bookshops in the world.

Cathedral

Besides the church, which was begun in the 12th century, it is worth visiting the tile-covered cloisters. The precinct, with its pillory and other monuments, has a superb view over the river and the houses on both sides.

Casa da Música

The bold design by Rem Koolhaas and the diverse musical program make this an icon of Porto.

Ribeira

Church of S.Francisco

The most important Gothic church in the city, whose Baroque interior is completely covered in gilt carvings.

Foz

Besides the beaches, Foz (river mouth) is a place of recreation and terraces by the sea, with a pergola which lends it a special charm in photographs.

Clérigos Tower

One of Porto’s iconic landmarks, designed by Nicolau Nasoni, the most renowned architect of the Baroque period in northern Portugal.
It’s well worth climbing to the top of the tower for the view over the city and river.

Douro Valley

Called the enchanted valley, such is the beauty and magic that its landscapes offer, is a must do !

Take a cruise along the Douro River
