Porto is one of the oldest and culturally richest cities in the nation and in Europe. Its houses, streets and plazas attest to its unusually diverse and long history. The second largest city in Portugal, its historical district has been named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and for two centuries Porto has been internationally famous for the flavour of its wine. The city's energy is surprising and attractive, as are its historic vestiges and its inhabitants. For maximum enjoyment, guests should explore on foot, using public transportation only when necessary.
Theatre and musicals are popular choices for entertainment in Porto, and the theatres and concert halls host all kinds of events, including plays, concerts, ballet and opera. Most of the art galleries are concentrated in the Cedofeita area (ten minutes by car from the hotel). The Serralves Contemporary Art Museum was built by the famous Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza in 1999. It is the only project of its kind in the country and is the largest cultural centre in the north of Portugal (two minutes by car from the hotel). If you would like to try the famous Porto wine and experience its rich composition, body and long-lasting flavour, guests can visit the wine cellars in Ribeira (ten minutes by car from the hotel).
To be among the beautiful and chic of Porto, head to the Foz (three minutes by car from the hotel), right by the sea and surround yourself with designer clothes and expensive cars. While this area is full of bars and restaurants, the wooden esplanades built over the sand are most popular and delightful for having a drink and basking in the sun.Sports and Leisure
