Torre dos Clérigos
The Torre dos Clérigos is a very popular attraction in Porto with a line of foreign tourists waiting to ascend the 75m tower each day for spectacular views over the city. The Torre dos Clérigos become an icon of the city and was the tallest building in Portugal when it was completed in 1763. The Igreja dos Clérigos (Clérigos Church) is the church in front of its more famous bell tower, the Torre dos Clérigos.

Livraria Lello
Are you a Harry Potter fan? Did you know that J.K Rowling lived in Porto teaching English in the early 1990s. Did you know that Lello bookshop is an inspiration of the Harry Potter’s library in Hogwarts? It’s impossible not to fall in love with this fabulous bookshop and the totally unique spectacle of an amazing interior architecture. In the past, it was quick and easy just to get inside and appropriate this place. Since it became so famous, there is a queue and little fee to enter.

Porto Cathedral
Porto Cathedral (Sé) is located in the center of Porto’s old town very close to Sao Bento Station. The historic, fortress-like Romanesque church dates from 1110, though construction was completed in the 13th century, making the cathedral one of the oldest buildings in Porto. Very beautiful cathedral with the breathtaking view of the old town, river and Dom Luis Bridge.
5
Mercado do Bolhão
This quirky market is full to bursting with fresh food, including meat, fish, fruit and vegetables and bread. You can also buy flowers and crafts. Its variety makes for a fun morning, even for children.
6
São Francisco Church
From the outside, it looks like your run of the mill European church. Once inside, however, this Baroque and Gothic-style church will astonish you with its incredibly lavish decoration. Almost every inch of the place is covered in gold. Don’t miss it!

Get lost in Ribeira
Porto’s old town is full of medieval streets, characteristic boats, charming cafés, and neat architecture. Have some lunch, try to get purposefully lost, grab a glass of port, and stay awhile. It’s my favorite part of the city!

Bridge Luis I
Straddling the River Duoro, the arching ironwork of the Dom Luís I bridge dominates Porto’s waterfront. It’s a imposing sight, whether you’re looking at it or looking out from the top of its 45-metre-high arch. Porto’s known as the ‘city of bridges’ and this is one of six linking it to the Vila Nova de Gaia on the opposite bank, where many port lodges are based. The Dom Luís Bridge was built by Téophile Seyrig, the business partner of Gustav Eiffel who had already worked with him on the similar-looking Maria Pia Bridge in Porto, Eiffel’s last project before his Tower. It stretches over 170 metres between the river banks and was the longest arch bridge in the world when it opened in 1886. Today the lower level is used by cars and the upper one by the metro, as well as pedestrians soaking up the views across Porto and Gaia.

Wine tasting
Porto is the home of port wine and a visit here would not be complete without visiting the port wine lodges at Vila Nova de Gaia.
10
Morro's Garden
The place overlooking the river, bridge, and center of Porto. Usually not very crowded.
