Points of interest

PORTO

Porto is a fascinating and vibrant city that is rapidly becoming one of Western Europe’s most respected tourist destinations. The city boasts an extensive history, interesting tourist attractions, and a buzzing nightlife, and outstanding tourist facilities. There is a lot to see and do in Porto, and this diverse city will appeal to a wide range of visitors.

Porto is a historic and varied city, from the warren of narrow streets that make up the ancient Ribeira district through to the grand plaza of the Trindade district. The region is famed for the production of Port, which is still stored and matured in the vast cellars that stretch along the banks of the Douro River.
This guide will provide an introduction to Porto, by answering some of the common holiday planning questions and offering links to further detailed tourist information.

 

D.LUÍS I BRIDGE

The real name of this bridge is Luiz I and not, as it is popularly called, D. Luís I. A sentimental question from the people of Porto seems to be at the origin of the name for which it is commonly known. Regardless of the name, it is an ex-libris of the city and has been included in the area classified as World Heritage by UNESCO since 1996.

The work was awarded on November 21, 1881 to the company Société Willebreck, from Brussels, of which the administrator was Théophile Seyrig, disciple of Gustave Eiffel, and author of the new bridge project.

Works began that same year and continued until 1887. On May 26, 1886, the first tests were carried out on the bridge, subjecting it to loads of 2,000 kg per linear meter of beam. On October 30, 1886, the construction of the arch and the upper deck was completed; on October 31, 1886 the upper deck of the bridge was inaugurated and in 1887 the lower deck was inaugurated, with which the construction works of the new bridge were completed.

It was a toll bridge (five kings per person) instituted, one day after the inauguration of the upper deck, on November 1, 1886 and which would only stop being charged on January 1, 1944, that is, almost 58 years later.

Some data: Arc with 172 m, Upper board with 392 m long and the bottom with 174 m long.

 

MORRO GARDEN

More than a garden, it is a privileged viewpoint over the Douro River and over the city of Porto. The Jardim do Morro, in Gaia, is an excellent place to watch the sunset or to take a relaxed stroll and enjoy the scenery.

The garden, which was recently restored, takes the place of a hill that existed there and that was eventually destroyed, in order to open an avenue that connected Gaia to the upper deck of the bridge and to Porto.

The garden was opened in 1927 and since that time it has been a privileged viewpoint for Porto, to which a lake, a cave and, more recently, strategically placed stone benches, give an even greater charm. Recent works have improved the conditions of this green space, also providing it with a bar and other support structures.
