Along the Douro River, on the river bank, typical picturesque houses attract the attention of all visitors. In addition to a pleasant walk, you will find different bars and restaurants where you can relax and enjoy both a magical atmosphere and beautiful views over the river and its bridges.
One of the best known bridges is the Don Luis I Bridge, which connects the city with Vila Nova de Gaia. This iron bridge became an emblem of the city since its inauguration in 1886. It is also a fantastic viewpoint.
