Things To Do on Your Trip To Porto

Port Wine Cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia

The Port wine cellars are mostly located on the banks of the Douro, but some, such as Taylor’s, Graham’s, Croft or Cockburn’s are a little further away.

Bolsa Palace

The Palácio da Bolsa was built on the ruins of the Franciscan convent that was destroyed in a fire. Its construction began in 1842 and it took almost half a century until its inauguration in 1891.

Porto Wine Museum

The beautiful building is located in front of the river, in the area of Porto known as Miragaia, relatively close to the “Palacio de Cristal” gardens. Nonetheless, it is easier to arrive via the Ribeira.

Palacio de Cristal

A large number of camellias blush the path, which can be enjoyed among fountains and sculptures. From these gardens we can see not only the Douro River and several of its bridges, but even the mouth of the river into the Atlantic Ocean.

Olive tourism

In a country so strongly influenced by a Mediterranean climate, the olive tree has been a feature on the Portuguese landscape since time immemorial. The quality of the soil and the climatic variations determine the varieties of the olives and consequently the quality and diversity of the olive oils produced.

Livraria Lello Bookstore

Livraria Lello has been a bookstore very much of its times ever since 1906, carrying within it over a century of history and stories, imbued into its architectural surroundings and also into the bookish knowledge that shape the experiences of those who visit and those who read.

Convento Corpus Cristi

This convent was built in the 14th century and originally stood close to the river. However, given the frequency with which the River Douro flooded, the Dominican nuns decided in the 17th century to build the church that can be seen today

Hospital de Santo Antonio

Located in the Historic Center of Porto, more specifically in Largo do Professor Abel Salazar, Hospital de Santo António completed, in 2020, 250 years since the first stone was laid.

Cork in Portugal

Portugal is the world’s largest cork producer, accounting for over 50% of the global production. The export of cork-derived products manufactured in Portugal significantly contributes to a positive trade balance for the country.

Joaquim’s house is well located for access to the beach and Porto. It was nice to be a little away from the city center to relax a bit. Spacious space with everything we needed, including a towel warmer in the bathroom!

Peter, Canmore, Canada - October 2023

Joaquim’s guest house was private, spacious and a wonderful place to stay while visiting Porto. We appreciate your visit to the house when we checked in and we also enjoyed your port wine! A fantastic space to relax after busy days visiting Porto

Jonah - October 2023

I had a lot of fun in Porto. It was easy to get there by bus and taxi. The apartment was charming and had everything we needed for the week. Very nice host who couldn’t do enough for us . I would love to come back next year.

Emma, United Kingdom - October 2023

We had fun at Joaquim’s house. He is a very friendly and helpful host and personally welcomed us for check-in, showed us around the property and gave us great tips for the area. The property is as in the photos and the kitchen is very well equipped. The apartment is very spacious, so we could have imagined it for a longer stay. From the apartment, you can do a lot or enjoy the excellent swimming pool.
We highly recommend staying at Joaquim’s place and would book with him again. Thanks!

Anna, Darmstadt, Germany - September 2023

We stayed with four friends at Joaquim’s house in Porto for three nights. The house had all the essential amenities and the proximity to the beach was an advantage since we came for surfing lessons. The house was very clean and the large pool added to the experience. Joaquim’s welcome gift of his homemade port wine was a very nice gesture – the Tawny was delicious. Joaquim is a very sociable host who likes to come and chat with guests and gave us useful restaurant recommendations. We recommend this Airbnb to friends, families and couples. Thank you, Joaquim!
