Interaction with guests
I live on the same street as the house, Forged by some of history's leading architects, Porto's majestically adorned valleys combine Latin charisma, Baroque flair, and a perculiarly British streak as sweet as the region's Port wine. Here's what to see in one of the world's most charismatic cities! Dom Luis Bridge Gustave Eiffel's Dom Luis Bridge is as spectacular as the views from it. Cross the Duoro to the famous Port wine cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia for sun-soaked panoramas of both cities! Clerigos Tower The highest point in a low city, sailors once used the Clerigos Tower as a guide into the riverfront square. Great views await if you can manage the 240 steps to the top! Porto Cathedral, Palacio da Bolsa (Stock Exchange Palace)

About the neighborhood
Vila Nova de Gaia is on the Douro River and at its quays you can often see the 'rabelos', boats carrying barrels of port wine. There are typical restaurants close by, as well as numerous cellars where you can try some of the Port since it is the speciality of this part of the city! You can park free of charge in the street close to the apartment.

The Costa Verde region
In the north-western part of the country lies this land of dense vegetation and profound historic wealth. It was here that Portugal's first king, Dom Afonso Henriques, was born in the beginning of the 12th century, having then extended the kingdom to the south, in what was considered as one of the most heroic feats of the Christian Reconquest.
