Discover ourTours in Porto!
Its narrow and twisting streets, its medieval houses in slopes and its tile panels give us an astonishing landscape and an unique architectural framework. Within the city lies an undeniable historical wealth with genuine baroque palaces and churches, along with large boulevards and modern masterpieces of the most significant contemporary architects, three of which won the Pritzker Prize.
You can wander in the wide green spaces as well as in the delightful beaches and romantic gardens. The “barcos rabelos” wait all along the riverbank of Vila Nova de Gaia for you to join for a boat ride. You can visit the port wine cellars, the local football club that is known internationally – the Futebol Clube do Porto – and enjoy the rich cultural diversity and cuisine.
