Top recommendations from locals

Park
“This park is also known as the “lung of the city” and is not only the largest urban park in Porto but in Portugal, with around 83 hectares. People who come here will have the possibility to spend pleasant moments in the company of family or friends, whether it is resting on the grass that covers a large part of the park or strolling through the various paths, some of which lead to the coast. In addition to the green of the grass, you will also marvel at the diversity of trees that you will find there, as well as some lakes that delight the children who try to throw a piece of bread at the beautiful ducks that swim in these waters.”

Kunstmuseum
“This fabulous cultural institution combines a museum, a mansion and extensive gardens. Cutting-edge exhibitions, along with a fine permanent collection featuring works from the late 1960s to the present, are showcased in the Museu de Arte Contemporânea, an arrestingly minimalist, whitewashed space designed by the eminent Porto-based architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. The delightful, pink Casa de Serralves is a prime example of art deco, bearing the imprint of French architect Charles Siclis. One ticket gets you into both museums. The museums sit within the marvellous 18-hectare Parque de Serralves. Lily ponds, rose gardens, formal fountains and whimsical touches – such as a bright-red sculpture of oversized pruning shears – make for a bucolic outing in the city. The estate is 6km west of the city centre; take bus 201 from in front of Praça Dom João I, one block east of Avenida dos Aliados.”

Bäckerei

“This owes its planning to the visionary spirit of the Almadas whose restoration work brought a new brightness to the city of Porto in the second half of the 18th Century. The road was extended as far as Alameda da Aguardente, today's Praça Marquês de Pombal. Its imposing façades house some fine examples of the Art Nouveau style. Over 1500 metres long, the Rua de Santa Catarina, part of which has been pedestrianised, is the busiest shopping street in the city centre with clothing stores, haberdashery, shoe shops, the Via Catarina shopping mall and countless street vendors, less or more legal and carts selling handicrafts and jewelry.”

“You can't visit Porto without visit Bolhão. This market is where farmers and people from here came to sell their fruit and vegetables. Unfortunately it's closed for renovations. But you can visit the temporary one at La Vie.”

Brücke
“City icon, we always recommend crossing it by foot (you can do it by the upper level or down), so you can enjoy the view. In the summer time you will see local children jumping from the lower part of the bridge to the river. ”
