The Ribeira is one of the oldest and typical places of the city. Located along the Douro River, it is part of the Historic Center of Porto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


The second oldest neighbourhood of Porto is still one of the most traditional with its small alleys and colourful houses.

Porto Customs House

The Alfândega Nova do Porto (the New Porto Customs House) was built by Seyrig Incorporation (the same company that made the D. Luis I iron bridge, in Ribeira), in the second half of the 19th century, and was completed in 1879.

Afurada Fishing Village

S. Peter of Afurada is one of the three old urban parishes of the city of Gaia, along with Mafamude and Santa Marinha. Connected to fishing traditions, the village is known for the feast of S. Pedro da Afurada.

Arrábida Bridge

Built as an alternative connection between Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, the bridge had the biggest concrete arch in the world at the time of its construction in 1963.

Calem Garden

Situated close to the parish of Lordelo do Ouro, near the mouth of the Douro River, this small garden space is the perfect place to enjoy a sunset.

Lighthouse of São Miguel

The lighthouse of São Miguel-o-Anjo is Portugal’s oldest existing lighthouse and one of the oldest in Europe. Designed by Italian architect Francesco da Cremona, the project was completed in 1538.

Fortress of S. João da Foz

Built in the late sixteenth century to better protect the coast and the mouth of the Douro River. The monument is a fine example of military architecture held by the Regional Delegation of the Institute of National Defense.

Queijo Castle

Its first settlement was in the 6th century. A new fort construction was ordered by King John IV in the 15th century.

City Park

The City Park is the largest urban park in Portugal, with an area of 83 hectares that stretch out as far as the Atlantic Ocean, which is globally something of a rarity.
