The guided tour of this attraction is realy interesting. Both from the historical and artistic point of view. This auditorium is unique because the main hall is illuminated by natural light, too. I suggest you to buy ticket combined with the servelade museum of contemporary art.

The architecture of the building is interesting to look at. We did not go inside though. The park next to it is also worth checking out.

Contemporary building, well laid out. Great acoustics. Comfortable seats. All that is needed is your favorite music for a great evening.

Casa da Música is an Iconic 12-floor concert hall with a top floor restaurant designed by Rem Koolhaas and completed in 2005, if you like Modern Architecture you are going to love it, otherwise no so much, personally enjoyed the Baroque churches more

Daily tours are offered in English, and our attractive guide "Enis" (?) was very knowledgeable and well-spoken. We have been in other buildings designed by Koolhaas, most notably the Seattle Library, so were prepared for the quirky details. Unfortunately we did not have time to experience a performance there, as the acoustics are probably amazing.

Lots of people agree on how unique and fascinating the Casa da Musica is, but if you go there, don't leave without exploring the park right next to it. The traffic circle adjoining the Casa defines the Praca de Mouzinho de Albuquerque, whose interior is a tranquil park with many paths and shady benches. People jog by, throw tennis balls to their dogs, sit, and chat. While we were there, three nuns walked passed and smilingly wished us "Bon dia." The center of the park features a huge, impressive statue commemorating the moment in 1808 when the inhabitants of Porto threw out Napoleon's governor, defeated the French troops, and took their city back... if only for a brief period. Stand at the base of the statue and look at the Portuguese lion at the very top, which has vanquished the French eagle. Not to be missed!

while i'm not a fan of most modern architecture this one just about works however the concert i listened to and the acoustics were a joy to hear and made for a evening well spent.
and as it's situated only a 5 minute walk from the metro station of the same name it's very easy to find.

It is worth the effort to get a program of the Casa da Muica and buy a ticket for a concert to fully enjoy the place!

If you are planning on visiting the opera house for a guided tour I would recommend you do this on your first day in Porto as you can get a discounted ticked for concerts with your tour ticket. It’s also a great way of finding out what free concerts may be on during your stay. The tour itself is really enjoyable and informative as you get the history and stories of the building and the materials which were used in its construction. It’s the perfect length to retain your attention and its wonderfull getting to see all of the different rooms in the building.
