Porto, Gaia, Leça…

Porto Wine transported -1

Gaia is a scenic place by the river that should not be missed when visiting Porto, Portugal, The views are awesome and you will see the small boats carrying the precious Porto wine along the DouroRiver.

We also visited a small pretty church that neighbors a construction projected by the famous Portuguese Architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. Unfortunately, the construction (a former tea house?) was abandoned and in desperate need of renovation.

An excellent place to have lunch is Restaurant “O Ernesto”, located in Porto, Portugal. We had a delicious meal there.

Where to have dinner in Porto:

There are several places, and most of them will offer delicious food with honest prices. We had a delicious dinner at “Restaurant Mauritania”, in Matosinhos.

Biking in Porto

For those like us who love a bike ride, Porto is an ideal place to go biking. Luckily, the apartment we rented came with two bikes included and we didn’t have to rent bikes to go around the city!

There were pretty sunny days and also some days where it was a bit chilly and rainy but none of these small “inconveniences” prevented us from riding along the gorgeous Portuguese sites!
