Full description
Experience a walking tour through the streets of the historical center of Porto, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Discover the city through its neighborhoods, buildings, and streets on a 3-hour guided trip.

Enjoy old palaces, charming churches, and lively neighborhoods. See the famous iron bridge, engineered by Teófilo Seyrig, the Port wine cellars, and the characteristic Rabelo boats lined up along the quay which preserve the memory of old times when they used to transport the wine casks.

Your guide will explain how, in the 12th century, the city grew around the construction of the cathedral, and has survived several Moorish and Castilian invasions as well as the French military invasions in the 19th century.

Along the way, stroll along Aliados Avenue to the place that served as a backdrop to the first proclamation of the Republic of Portugal.
