Considered to be one of Europe’s most charismatic cities, Oporto is packed with things to do. A combination of the past and the present make it a really atmospheric city. Book your hotel in Oporto and discover the things this city has to offer.
The area that goes from the central avenue, which is known as Avenida dos Aliados, until the riverfront, has been declared a World Heritage Site and it is packed with historical monuments and buildings which are a mandatory stop if you are planning to travel to Porto. Packed with beautiful churches and magnificent buildings such as Sao Bento Station or Palacio da Bolsa, this medieval quarter is one of the most touristic regions of Porto.
You shouldn’t miss some of Oporto’s fascinating museums either. You can visit the Modern Art Museum or the Museum of Sacred Art and Archaeology among others. But the House of Music, which is considered to be one of Porto’s landmarks as a European Cultural Capital, is also worth visiting.
If you are planning to book your hotel in Porto, you can’t miss the Port Wine Cellars, which are considered to be the city’s major appeal. Located on the southern bank of Douro River, opposite the city centre, they are port wine lodges where the wine is blended and aged. It is also a great opportunity for tasting the local wine. But if you want to taste the local wine, we recommend you to pay a visit to the Porto Wine Manor House, which is located in the historic part of Porto.
All this makes Porto, one of the premier European tourist destinations. With a privileged location on the cliffs above the banks of Douro River, this historic town, which has gained the UNESCO World Heritage Status, Porto is a great choice for your holidays.
