Best places to see in Portugal

Paris Galleries Street
Popular Areas
“Shall we go to the Galleries?”. In Porto, this is a common way of asking someone out for a drink. This street is piled high with trendy bars and groove-tastic discos. Out on the street, different strains of music thump out of clubs beckoning you in. Locals recommend Plano B, a funky bar with art exhibits and two separate dance floors. Night owls, fly this way.
Accommodations near Paris Galleries Street
Zoomarine Park
Attractions
When it comes to bucket lists, swimming with dolphins always seems to make the cut. Zoomarine Park offers you the chance to chalk this much-coveted experience off of yours! It’s part-aquarium, part-water park, combining all the best watery pursuits in one fun-filled place. Clap along with sea lions and gawp at seahorses, then pop on your swimmers for some flume-based frolics!
Accommodations near Zoomarine Park
Belem Tower
Monuments
Have you ever seen a military building with such an emphasis on beauty? Belem Tower was built as a defensive fortress, surrounded by the waters of the Tagus. But this is a real work of art. There are bulbous Moorish turrets on each corner, crenulations carefully carved with the Portuguese crest and a Venetian loggia that’s more Canaletto than cannonballs. An impressive hybrid.
Accommodations near Belem Tower
Palacio da Bolsa
Landmarks
It’s strictly historic of Palacio da Bolsa. This neoclassical palace was designed as part of the São Francisco Church, but was rebuilt as the headquarters for the Porto Commerce Association. Today, it’s used to house permanent art collections. Make sure to pass by the Arab Room, a gleaming gold chamber that dazzles with its decoration.
Accommodations near Palacio da Bolsa
Clerigos Tower
Monuments
What’s a historical city without that quintessential tower sitting provocatively at its centre? Meet the Clerigos Tower, Porto’s very own baroque beacon. An indispensable piece of the city skyline, this tower is worth the trek up. When you’re at the top, piles of pastel buildings, terracotta rooftops, and forgotten city streets paint a pretty patchwork picture of Porto below.
Accommodations near Clerigos Tower
D. Luis I Bridge
Landmarks
The Dom Luis Bridge is more than a convenient way to cross the Douro River. It’s a coveted city icon and arguably the best place to catch long-reaching views of Porto’s rooftops, Rabelo boats, and the Fernandine Wall. Amble over it at sunset and you’ll hear the call of seagulls, the ring of the metro, and the song of various languages melding together into one.
