Panorama

Porto is one of the most beautiful European cities. We will start our visit with a panoramic view of the sea at the beach in Matosinhos, traveling along the coast until we reach the “Foz”, the mouth of the Douro River, passing through the old medieval city district of Miragaia and arriving at the Tower of Clerigos.

Tower of Clerigos-Lello Bookstore - Carmo Church (Igreja do Carmo)

Here we can photograph the symbol of this city: the Tower of Clerigos. Built in 1754, the Tower is 75 meters high and at the time it was the tallest building in the city of Porto. Next we will visit the Lello Bookstore where writer JK Rowling found the inspiration for her best-selling book “Harry Potter”. It’s without a doubt one of the most outstanding bookstores in the world. Lello’s beauty is a great attraction for a vast number of tourists. We will stop for photographs at Carmo Church (Igreja do Carmo) noted for its marvelous exterior facades decorated with blue and white tiles.

Aliados-Mercado do Bolhão-Santa Catarina-Café Majestic

“Avenida dos Aliados” is the famous and largest avenue in Porto where we see dazzling architectural examples of granite buildings decorated with domes and sculptures that are the envy of other big European capitals. This is the center of the city where Porto’s imposing City Hall, built at the beginning of the 20th century, is located. Next we will visit the city’s major market place “Mercado do Bolhão” known for the extravagant way that the vendors have of selling by crying out their daily fresh products: flowers, vegetables, fish, etc. From here we head on to “Rua de Santa Catarina”, the shopping district of the city. This street is aligned with magnificent shops whose windows are more than appealing to the eye of the visitor. It is also here that we will find the famous Majestic Café, a meeting place for Porto’s high society, intellectuals and bohemian artists. The Majestic is considered the most beautiful café in Portugal and one of the most enchanting in the world, entrenched with the glamour of the “Belle Époque” time period.
