Parque de Avioso - S. Pedro

Reviewed By smtcgirl - Braga, Portugal

It's a beautiful and peaceful park. I work relatively close and it feels good to go there to lunch and then walk around a little bit.

Super Bock Casa da Cerveja

It is a truly unique space. With sophisticated environments, innovative architecture and decor, a "living house" in full operation, where you can learn the entire brewing process, meet the raw materials, as well as the memorable moments, stories and curiosities about Super Bock. In the lounge are presented two food paring with beer, and in the store a wide range of branded articles are available.

Ponte de Dom Luis I

Built in 1886, this bridge links Porto and Gaia.

Reviewed By Gary S - Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

Well we picked the wettest Easter on record to visit Porto.
We did the lower part of the bridge on the pouring rain and the return from the Dark Side by the upper bridge in what can only be described as crazy windswept outward bound type adventure. People were blown sideways. Umbrellas broken beyond repair.
What a day.
It's just a bridge...looks the bees knees. It was built back in 1792...so with those winds it has stood the test of time.
We were shot blasted but survived.

Bom Jesus de Matosinhos Church

Reviewed By mipita - Ponteareas, Spain

This church is also known as Igreja do Bom Jesus de Matosinhos. The inside gold leafed carvings are most impressive. The church and surrounding grounds were reconstructed in the early 18th century with resources from offers promised by immigrants who made a fortune in Brazil.
The church closes from noon until 2:30 (Mon-Sat) and from noon to 5 pm on Sundays, so plan your visit accordingly.

Porto Augusto's

Reviewed By Rose G

Weren't sure what to expect but everybody was really friendly and helpful. Manuel and Steve really know their stuff and made a couple of Port wine novices far more knowledgeable after our visit. Our Delivery arrived in central France just 3 days later. Highly reccomended.

Zoo da Maia

Reviewed By Kayleigh F

This zoo has some amazing animals, such as lions, tigers and a brown bear! You can also get very close to them unlike many zoos in the UK. It's just a shame how small some of the enclosures are, and how little shade is offered...MoreWe want to thank the kind words. Be always welcome

Mosteiro de Leca do Balio

Reviewed By ピーターサム - Kanazawa, Japan

サンタ・マリア・デ・レサの修道院は、教会堂の裏にひっそりとたたずんでいます。建物はロマネススク教会建築様式でできています。巡礼で先を急ぐため、今回は時間もなく修道院内をお邪魔はしませんでした。外から拝見させて頂きました。特に回廊が優美でした。

What a wonderful view in Serro do Pillar, it inspired us to then walk the bridge and take the Cable Car for another vantage point. Quite a hike all uphill, wear comfortable shoes.

The location is very good, just 100m from the Metro station. The tour guide described the history related with the tower as well as the city history itself. After that, we took the lift to the 19th floor where we were able to go outside...MoreThank you Miguel for your review. We were very pleased you had a good experience. Hope to see you again.

Very old church rebuilted in 1097, mostly romanic style. You should also visit the cemitery. Outside the church there are some old graves.
