“This park is also known as the “lung of the city” and is not only the largest urban park in Porto but in Portugal, with around 83 hectares. People who come here will have the possibility to spend pleasant moments in the company of family or friends, whether it is resting on the grass that covers a large part of the park or strolling through the various paths, some of which lead to the coast. In addition to the green of the grass, you will also marvel at the diversity of trees that you will find there, as well as some lakes that delight the children who try to throw a piece of bread at the beautiful ducks that swim in these waters.”

“The Tower, Museum and Church Clérigos are a must-see in the city. After climbing 225 steps to reach the top of the tower, you will be astonished by the view of the city (a 360° perspective).”

“This library is probably one of the most beautiful places to visit in Porto. By other hand there is always a big queue to get in even if you bought your ticket in advance. If is it worth? If you are staying in Porto more than 2 days, my answer is yes, if not, my answer is no. Additionaly, you have to pay 5€ to get in but if you buy a book you can use that value as a 5€ voucher. Also, don't take serious when you read in the internet that this library is related with Harry Potter because is not!!! Anyway, it is a big mark in Porto for sure. I love it.”
