Full description
Discover Miragaia, a lovely parish in the city of Porto, on this 2.5-hour walking tour. Perhaps the oldest stories you’ll hear involve King Ramiro, Gaia Castle, the Moor and the Beautiful Princess named Mira.

Hear about the courage of fishermen challenging the sea and the visionary personality that propelled the Portuguese discoveries and the expansion of the world.

The storyteller will show you majestic estates and beautiful gardens. See the Avenida das Tílias and Jardim do Roseiral, with memorials to the artistic patrimony of the city. Located in the historic center of Porto, the garden or Horto das Virtudes is one of the hidden charms of the city.
