Come and visit Porto!
Come and visit Porto, this amazing vibrating city which seems to be more alive than never!
This beautiful city surrounded by charm and history can be described with a pronounced 18th-century accent. Extravagant Baroque churches and stately neoclassical buildings punctuate the skyline, their most valuable contents displayed in world-class museums set in picturesque squares.
Jardim do Palácio de Cristal
This paradisiac botanical garden is one of Porto’s best-loved escapes, adorned with fountains, sculptures, giant magnolias, camellias, cypress and olive trees. This breathtaking place is perceived as a confesional mosaic of different epochs, enriching visitors’ senses in a past-present timeline.
Founded in the 12th century, largely rebuilt a century later and then extensively altered during the 18th century, this medieval cathedral proves its splendor through its tangled alleys with flowering stairways to heaven, meant to transpose visitors to ancient times.
The astonishing resemblance to Notre Dame Cathedral de Paris might be a sweet catching daydream for anyone impassioned with worldwide art and architecture.
Casa da Música
This minimalist and imposing unique piece of architecture is a cardinal point of reference on Porto’s map. Casa da Musica is the cultural scene and the home of the Porto National Orchestra jewel in the city’s European Capital of Culture 2001 crown, rejoicing the admiration and heartbeat of the public.
Mercado do Bolhão
If you feel like being spontaneous in the weekend, the Mercado do Bolhão is the perfect place to spend your Fridays and Saturdays mornings, delighting yourself with special tasty fish snacks, while walking among market stalls sprinkled with tempting souvenirs and amazing sweets.
You can also have a bite of the most exquisite portuguese wines and cheese. And I have to confess this guilty pleasure has always been one of the bucket list’s whishes of travellers.
Museu da Misericórdia do Porto
Wearing the hallmark of Italian baroque architect Nicolau Nasoni, this church’s interior gathers 15th- to 17th-century sacred art and portraiture, which reminds modern society our duty and gratitude to the ancestral inheritance.
Museu da Misericórdia do Porto it’s a not to be missed place to visit and to enjoy.
These charming places represent the perfect getaway, where you can admire unique landscapes, incredibile refined architecural buildings, taste surprinsingly delicious food specialties and noble wines and live memorable moments.
