Description

Departure by coach for a guided tour of Porto. We will start off our tour with a visit of the cathedral Sé do Porto. It is the most important religious edifice in the city and has been declared a National Monument. The fortress-like building is in Batalha, in the upper part of Porto, very close to the walls that once protected the city. Its construction began during the twelfth century, but it was rebuilt and renovated numerous times throughout the centuries. This explains why the Cathedral, while predominantly Baroque, is a mix of architectural styles. The cathedral square offers impressive views over the city, the Douro River and the wine cellars on the waterfront. We'll continue on to the Palacio da Bolsa (Stock Exchange Building), built in 1834 by the city's Commercial Association. After climbing up the beautiful granite and marble stairway, we'll visit the former Tribunal Room, the Golden Room and the Arab Room, decorated in the exotic Moorish Revival style. Afterwards, we'll cross the Dom Luis I Bridge to Villa Nova de Gaia for the visit of a wine cellar. Porto's pride notably stems from its famous wine known the world over, which you will get to taste*. We'll return on board.
