que visitar?

parque de serralves

Formal gardens, woodland and a traditional farmhouse. Serralves Park is the ideal place for those who enjoy being in contact with nature. The park surrounding the Museum of Contemporary Art (Serralves Foundation) has different itineraries that you can follow to explore the gardens without missing a single detail.

palácio da bolsa

Classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the Palácio da Bolsa is one of the most important historical monuments in Portugal. The visit is done exclusively on guided tours but the most beautiful and well-preserved rooms make the visit worthwhile.

torre dos clérigos

If there is a true postcard of the city of Porto, it is the Clérigos Tower. Considered the most emblematic work of the Italian architect Nicolau Nasoni, the tower has 225 steps and when you reach the top you will be able to enjoy a panoramic view of the city and also of Vila Nova de Gaia.
