  • It is about 500 years old, which is on its own almost a reason to make you visit it. Besides it is located in a unique area of Oporto, at the place where Douro River reaches the Atlantic. You can walk in the middle of some palm trees and simultaneously look at and feel the smell of the river and the sea.
  • Wonderful views in foz of the wild Atlantic. Great spot for a nice walk or jog in the evening. Plenty of nice restaurants nearby too
