They don't have a permanent exhibit but host travelling shows from other museums. Check to see what's there before going. They had several different exhibits when we were there but the only one I cared for was one with interactive Robert Morris pieces and films....More

The Serralves estate was a private residence until de 1970s. The house (pink building) was built in the 1920s by architect Marques da Silva (who also made the S. Bento Railway Station, though in a totally different style) for the viscount of Vizela. It's an...More

The garden is absolutely amazing! The contemporary art lovers will enjoy the museum and exhibitions! If you want to spend a nice day, go to Serralves, and rest in the garden after the museum visit.

We wandered into the museum because it was raining. Inside we saw two outstanding exhibitions. From there we walked down the hill to the river and this gave us an insight into how the residents live.

We ate in the café in the gardens, next to the former tennis courts. The food was good value and very tasty. We had toasted cheese and ham sandwiches; you could say it was quite "rustic," or not very sophisticated, but it... More

Yes, big albeit public space by the office, but as you'd only ever arrive by car I'd just leave your stuff locked in your vehicle - openly parked out front, minimal chance of any problem

Day-Trip From Lisbon: Sintra or Porto? (4 Replies)
I am planning my first trip to Lisbon in February, and I intend to do a day trip, although I only have time for one. Initially I planned to visit Sintra, due in part to how much everyone raves about it, plus I'd love to see its stunning architecture for myself. However I've just stumbled across Ryanair flights to Porto for only 22 euros return, departing from Lisbon at 8am and leaving Porto in the evening at 9pm. Porto is another city that I've always really wanted to see, and now I'm torn....More

In my opinion Porto deserves more than a daytrip visit. But if you are going: Flying there seems cheap and quicker than going by train, but consider that you still have to be around 2 hours before at the airport and then take transport to city center, so at the end and considering that the train takes around 3 hours and you can get very discounted tickets when buying well in advance, flying isn't really better than taking a train. If you take the first and last AP trains you'll get almost...More

So far on my list are - Cais de Ribeira, Serralves Museum, Sao Francisco Church, Palacio da Bolsa, Cathedral, Clerigos Tower, Dom Luis Bridge. I don't think we would probably go to all of these, bur wondered if I have missed anything? We like a bit of culture and a few beers! Also any ideas for good and cheap(ish) vegetarian food places?

Going to Oporto (plane) for a full day mainly to see an exhibition in Serralves and have some questions: How much, roughly, is a taxi from the airport to Serralves Foundation? One from Serralves to Alfandega do Porto (customs) - we are having lunch nearby- and a final on back to the airport? Considering I am travelling with 2 relatives who are both 80 could you suggest some activities that doesn’t involve too much walking? We have been to Porto before and to some of the main sites...More
