About Porto

Porto is one of Europe’s most fascinating but least known travel destinations. Its historic architecture and spectacular location overlooking the River Douro make Porto one of the most authentic and memorable city landscapes.


Historically a city of merchants and commerce, its many elegant buildings are testament to the enterprise and vision of its industrious and independently-minded inhabitants, with their distinctive accent, quick sense of humour and famously welcoming nature.

The cellars of the Port wine houses, amongst which Três Séculos is loacted, remain one of the city’s most unique attractions. However, a stroll through the old city centre, now a World Heritage site, is an equally fascinating experience.

The extraordinary architecture of buildings such as the Cathedral, the Clérigos Tower, São Bento Railway station and the old Stock Exchange coexists with traditional shops and trades, elegant cafés and a lively and authentic street life.

These days, Porto is also justly famed as a vibrant city which enjoys its food and is home to some of Portugal’s most celebrated chefs. The city is also renowned for its night life, with its fashionable downtown bars and the constantly changing club scene of the western districts.

Porto is above all a city of hidden delights, of intimate squares and gardens, traditional markets and unusual museums. It is a city of districts and quarters, each with its own special and authentic character. Stylish, eccentric, elegant or romantic, Porto is a city of experiences.
