About the tour

In the past, only the most prosperous cities in Europe had Cathedrals. On this tour learn why Porto's was built on the top of a hill (and once we're there why don't we have a look at Gaia, across the river?). Its from there, high above that we start our tour, venturing into the medieval narrow streets and alleys of this unforgettable quarter. Discover the "Crickets Church", part of the XIV century wall, finishing our walk in one of the richest squares of Porto, named after our famous navigator. Find yourselves surrounded by a XIX market, Bolsa Palace (where the Arabian room lies), and the amazing church of gold - St. Francisco Church, being just steps away from the river. Are you up for the adventure?

Meet your local guide


Claudia was born in Porto and in love with it ever since. Because she was raised up there she knows Porto's streets as the palm of her hand. In 2003 Claudia finished her degree in tour guiding and got her licence that same year. She has a short masters in wine and loves to try and discover new Portuguese wine always (of course!) along with the unique local gastronomy. Come and join her walking up and down the streets of steep Porto and be mesmerized by its beauty.
