What will you find in this tour?

During our Medieval and Ribeira Tour the travellers will immerse themselves into the heart of a town that is a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, noticeable by the two walls that surrounded it, being one medieval and the other one Roman.

We will walk on narrow stairs, close to bare-stoned towers and walls that are witnesses of the intrigues of times in which the force of swords decided the destinies of many. The tour will pass among the most picturesque plazas and spots of Porto’s medieval quarter until we get to the Ribeira. This place is distinguished by the lots of little ancient coloured houses, so typical of Porto. At their ground floors you can still find the stone piers where the boats used to dock. These boats brought the Porto wine from the high part of Douro river. The markets, churches, the Stock Exchange Palace and the Jewish Quarter will tell us the story of this city until we get to the bridge that links Porto with Gaia, its neighbour town. If at this point you are missing a castle, that means that you haven’t paid enough attention, because we will visit one during this tour.

Come with us and discover Porto’s hidden castle, its Jewish Quarter, its streets, its stories and enjoy a worldwide known and unique area ?an area that our guides will show you in the most entertaining way during our Medieval and Ribeira Tour.
