The Porto square has several things to see including this statue . The area is very busy with traffic and tours everywhere . I would recommend a tour because there is much to see .

The walking tour ended at the statue of the "Navigator" who we were told didn't do much sailing himself, but promoted exploration. Located in a nice park with a view of locals relaxing.
