If you are on holiday in Portugal, it is the first destination that controls the sunny Algarve and is the capital city of Lisbon to meet the demand for cultural consumption a little-Portugal has much more to offer; And above all, Porto is an impressive metropolis in which the bear literally quilts.
Like many other Portuguese cities, Porto can also come up with a huge abundance of Catholic churches-imagine a lot of crucifixes, macabreing saviors and paintings that seem quite uneven: in a church we found a picture on which A royal couple drinking from a well full of blood, which was fed by a Jesus fountain. Definitely do not miss a visit to the catacombs of the Igreja de Sao Francisco: The subterranean tombs give rise to a queasy-pleasant Indiana Jones feeling.
But what is really funky is not the Catholic, but the modern Porto. For example, the Fotografiemuseum, right at the iconic Clerigos tower: there we can check out oppressive photos of Portuguese prisons, as well as quite crazy artistic photo experiments-and who is already in the area, who can be there right The view from the tower per se, as well as a visit to the adjacent sardine shop (yes, there really is, and it reminds a little to give Willy Wonka).
The entire area impresses Architekonisch through colourful houses, especially because of the iconic blue tiles.
Another architectural gem is the concert hall Casa da Musica.
In the nearby garden of the Crystal Palace you can enjoy a wonderful view of the city of Chillaxen. There are also free-running peacocks, which are partly fed by seniors-this is much more casual than feeding barren pigeons.
You can finish off the days in Porto with Port wine and of course with good food. We found some good fish bars on the north side of the river, which are surprisingly no tourist traps (!); On the south side of the river there are several tavernas, as well as a food court where I ate a green burger. You don’t do it all day. During the day you can eat in Porto with all sorts of sweet pastries-especially the pudding-containing Natas.
All in all, Porto is definitely worth a visit: Because of the macabre churches, the funky pop culture and of course because of the wonderful food.
