Porto is a city for walks in areas like the Avenue of the Allies, where we find many buildings from the modern, such as the Town Hall. From there we can go to the square, the most important freedom of the city.

Nearby is the San Bento train station, famous for its hall decorated with thousands of tiles decorated in Portugal’s history.

We can go to the cathedral of the cathedral of Porto, located in the highest part of the city and the church of the clergy and climb the tower to see a breathtaking view of the city. Other interesting churches of Our Lady of Carmo and the church of San Ildefonso with an incredible facade decorated with blue and white tiles.

A curious place is the Lello bookstore and Irma has even left the Harry Potter films. We can go to the Mercado do Bolhao, a very characteristic place with stands where fruits and vegetables are sold. Another recommended place is the building of the Palacio de la Bolsa where we make a guided tour.

To eat and drink

In the Rua Santa Catarina is the Cafe Majestic, a lovely coffee of 20s, where we drink and enjoy the historic atmosphere.

In Vila Nova de Gaia, a city near Porto, the wine cellars of Porto, are a major event. Also at the Avenida Diogo Leite there are places where we can buy a boat trip on the Douro, which sometimes involves admission to some winery.

Ribeira area along the river is ideal for eating. We can provide their typical soups and cod, as well as enjoy one of their wines. But remember that in Portugal and before dinner eat in Spain, so do not go too late.
