The castle, the center, all the history, the magnificent food and people, and all the open bars/pubs at the night does this city a reference in the North of Portugal (and Spain too!!!)

Perfect place to walk around exploring each new medieval street and public square. Nice little cafes, souvenir shops, well maintained buildings and very nice people.

I think the fact of being a World Heritage Historic Center is just the tip of the monument.

A very beautiful and well preserved center, with a lot of histories and History involved. Try to loose some time, and you will not regret it!

Its like walking in a museum but with the sunny and calm Portuguese weather.

We made the day trip from Porto by train ( 70 min from Sao Bento - just over 6 euro return ) and we were bowled over by the beauty of this place. Very much worth going especially teamed with a trip up on the teleferico to penha. We visited the Ducal palace and castle. The tourist info office very helpful with maps etc. Loved it.
