A place to sit and watch the world go by. So much character and history, not to be missed. You can enjoy a 50 minute river cruise, walk to the other side of the river and visit some of the oldest Port houses and enjoy some tastings.

The perfect place to chill-out a little bit. With a good company, warm sun and stunning view thru the city and douro rive!

The houses, bars and bridges put this spot into a nice atmosphere. Stayed here for over two hours in a lounge for lunch which was sooooo relaxing. But also a night spot to visit!

My friends and i spent a couple of hours strolling aimlessly around Ribeirinha's streets and allyways in glorious, early April sunshine, taking in the elegantly crumbling architecture, independant coffee shops and bars.Take time to look above ground floor level or you may miss some of the elegant, traditional tiles that adourn many of the buildings that tumble down steep hills...

Brilliant lively area alongside the river, lots of vibrant cafes, live music and any number of boat trips along the Douro river. Perfect and relaxing.

There is always many people, but it gives the place the right atmosphere. You can sit in the restaurant, enjoy the view and eat some food or drink port vine. At the night it worth visit too, everything is light up and look gorgeous.

Walking in this area was nothing special but not bad either. Mostly restaurants on the riverfront with vendors selling things that I wasn't interested in buying. I wouldn't make this a top priority to visit. We had some good pizza, sat outside which was nice, wish I could remember the name of the restaurant.

There's a certain charm and character to this area that I can't quite put my finger on. The pace at which people amble by, the food, the sights or wandering through the ancient alleyways and narrow corridors. Yes it is very touristy but not overwhelmingly so, the street still retains its character. Right above the shops where tourists gather locals... More

Romantic, relaxing, and pretty. Stroll around and enjoy. Boat trip on the Douro recommended (12.5 euros for 50 minutes). You can take the funicular from under the bridge base to the Bento station for 2.5 euros.

Yes it is touristy but find yourself a spot at one of the numerous cafes and just chill over a beer/Porto/snack. Soak up the sun and the atmosphere just for a while.
