What to visit in Porto

Avenida dos Aliados

Avenida dos Aliados is the center and heart of the city of Porto. At the top of this avenue is the beautiful building that houses the Oporto chamber. When descending to the Ribeira, take a short detour through the São Bento railway station and enjoy the beautiful tile panels.

Torre dos Clérigos

The Clérigos Tower, with a height of 76 meters, was the tallest building in Portugal at the time of its construction (between 1754 and 1763), and is still the highest tower in the country. It served for a long time as a lighthouse for the ships that entered Porto, since then offers visitors the highest panorama of the city, the Cathedral of Porto, the Douro and the cellars of Port wine.
