TOP 10 PLACES TO VISIT
Check out our Top 10 attractions in and make sure you don't miss it
Vila Nova de Gaia
Although it is the most visited attraction in Porto, Vila Nova de Gaia is technically not even located in the city. Despite this, this historical municipality is best known for around 60 terracotta-topped warehouses almost exclusively storing and selling port wine, which attracts wine aficionados from all over the world.
Museu de Arte Contemporânea
This museum contains works from the late 1960s to today, and is among the most attractive art museums in the city. Adorned by lily ponds, rose gardens, fountains and sculptures that show off great artistic tradition, this is an unmissable attraction that is only 6km from the Porto City Centre.
Ponte de Dom Luís I
Of Porto’s many attractive bridges, this one gets the most attention. Created in 1886 by a student of Gustave Eiffel, this bridge’s top deck is reserved for pedestrians and the city’s metro lines. Regular traffic flows through the lower deck. This iconic bridge is also important for its historical significance.
Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis
Housed in the formidable Palácio das Carrancas, this is Porto’s best art museum, and presents an incredible collection of artwork that ranges from Neolithic Carvings to Portugal’s own take on modernism. Best known for works of art that date from the 19th century, this attractive palace is also significant historically.
Palácio da Bolsa
Porto’s own tribute to its diligent money merchants – past and present – the Palácio da Bolsa is a neoclassical monument that was built over a period of 68 years before its completion in 1910. Don’t miss the Hall of Nations where the exchange once operated. Half hour guided tours are available.
Jardim do Palácio de Cristal
If you are looking for an escape in the city, look no further than this beautiful botanical garden sitting atop a bluff. Lawns interwoven with paths and dotted with fountains, sculptures, giant magnolias, camellias, and other types of flowers, it offers great views of the city and the Douro River.
Igreja da Misericórdia
This 16th century church was designed by baroque architect Nicolau Nasoni. The interior of this church is adorned with beautiful blue and white hand-painted tiles known locally as azulejos. This attractive church is famous for being the location of the Renaissance painting Fons Vitae, which is considered a timeless masterpiece.
São Bento Train Station
Named one of the world’s most beautiful train stations, São Bento reminds one of the early days of rail travel. Although completed in 1903, it is reminiscent of 19th century Paris. The most attractive sight in the station is the azulejo panels that depict historic battles and history of transport.
This hilltop cathedral that resembles a fortress was founded in the 12th century, although alterations and re-builds were done in subsequent centuries. The church’s Romanesque contours can still be recognised despite this. Inside the church, you can find a rose window and a 14th-century Gothic cloister from its early days.
Mosteiro da Serra de Pilar
This 17th-century hilltop monastery watches over Gaia on the other side of the Douro River from Porto. Containing a circular cloister and a church with a gilded altar, the views from this monastery are amazing. Owned by the Portuguese military, the monastery can only be visited on 40-minute guided tours.
