  • A large part of this wall (which included the former Porto) was largely destroyed during the second half of the 18th century. There is a long piece visible along the Douro, notably to height of the funicular of Guindais.

  • In the 14th century, the city of Porto has developed so quickly that it was not already inside the old city wall-which was built on the foundations of the Roman wall. Between 1368-1437 built new walls, 30 feet high and long at 2700 metres. In the second half of the 18th century, together with the loss of defensive functions-the wall began to be dismantled to make way for new streets and buildings. At the end of the 19th century with little left. In 1926 remains of 15TH century defensive wall was considered a national monument – thanks to some parts of survivor. In several places the River Douro seen his big residues. When the wall was built stairs that connect the district on the River with the city on a hill.

  • Free and really fascinating. Excellent view of both the old and new parts of the city, and of the bridge. Totally worth visiting. If there's construction and they're not letting you in, come back 10 minutes later and sneak by. It's not unsafe, they're just following instructions, but no one is going to get into trouble if no they didn't see you get in. Once you're on the wall it's all good even if they notice you.
  • They are the remains of the old wall. From the bridge you get a better view.
  • Nice feature, good views around
  • A must see visit in Oporto. Unique.
  • A free landmark that everyone should visit. Amazing views of the Douro River
