    Very pleasantly surprised by the breadth of interest from this tour, particularly . The depiction of the history of the club and its place in the Community in the brilliantly designed and atmospheric Museum was genuinely fascinating for all of us (ages 22 to 62) ..... so much so we nearly missed the start of the Stadium walk-round.
    Even if you've only got a passing interest in football this visit's well worth it !!
    Dead easy to get there on the metro too .... straight opposite the station exit.

    Our hotel was just around the corner from this food court, so we popped in regularly for dinner, snacks, coffee & drinks.

    All the vendors were friendly & helpful.

    Very busy place.

    Toilets on site.

    Imposing in both its position and its structure the cathedral can be seen from all over Oporto.It is not your average Catholic cathedral, being much more autere in design and decoration but as we have said about other places none the worse for that. Internal decoration again is subdued but for us there was a real sense of devotion and piety lacking in some of the more garish manifestations of the genre. With gentle orgam music contrasting with the busker saxophist outside who seemed only to know Griegs "Morning" this was quite a moving experience.

    The metro is a very good way to get around Porto. The only problem is the complexity of the ticket buying machines. Top tip: at the airport when you buy your ticket for the first time, ask one of the staff to show you how to use the ticket machine - and video the process with your phone for future reference! Also, buy 5 trips or more at a time on the card that the machine will give you, so you don’t have to join the queues of tourists trying to figure out how to buy their tickets. To go to the coast I recommend one of the hop on hop off buses, there are yellow, red and blue companies in competition with each other.

    The 2 churches are separated by a very narrow house, inhabited until the 1980's.

    The house was built so that the 2 churches would not share a common wall & to prevent any relations between the nuns of Igreja dos Carmelitas & the monks of Igreja do Carmo.

    You can visit the 2 churches, catacombs, the narrow house etc.

    Of note is the portal behind the statue of Christ so you could kiss his foot.

    Admission €3.50 pp.

    This is one of the more beautifully tiled churches on the outside. It's not very big inside.

    Try to see it during both the day and at night when its lit up as it photographs very well at both times.

    Its right next to the Bolhao metro exit.

    We joined a Portuguese language tour since our guide Jorge was allowed to translate in English. I've never seen a music hall on this scale. I've visited opera houses which are basically two parts -- a stage and an audience section. This one is truly avant-garde with multiple practice rooms, a room just for children, and a magnificent stage.
    It is a wonder for music performance buffs, but it is of limited interest for those into just music appreciation.
    There is an admission charge.

    Interesting 15th Century church, the interior entirely decorated with wood carvings.

    Recently reopened after extensive restoration work, there is a video you can watch to see the painstaking work.

    Admission €4 pp.

    The Igreja dos Carmelitas Descalços (Church of the Carmelites) is located right next to the Igreja do Carmo (Church of Our Lady of Carmo), so be sure to visit both. It is a national monument. Inside the church you can enjoy the gilded carvings, beautiful decorations and the chapels. There is also a museum you can visit.

    I wish I had this interesting way of learning about the history of the Portuguese discoveries when I was in school 40 years ago! Better spend 1-2 hours inside as there is much information and the boat ride takes 20 minutes. There was no queue, so we could quietly enjoy the exhibitions. Some buttons on the exhibition displays were not working and the sound in the boat should be improved, as it is sometimes difficult to hear the recorded narrator. The entrance fee is also high. Overall we recommend the World of Discoveries to everyone.

    I really like this church from the outside because it was well separated from everything. For me it had a very dark particular style.
