  • Fernandina wall was built in the 14th century, to protect the town and townspeople Port from external attacks enemies and conquerors. Unfortunately, up to the present day survived only some fragments of this great medieval wall. The surviving fragments of this grandiose structures with 1926 year listed national heritage monuments in Portugal. There is an assumption that the total number of towers in this defence construction was about 30, and gates and passageways at least 15.

  • How have transported to another time. A small part of the ancient walls of the port, with a large and beautiful view. To reach the wall, passing through a courtyard of the Church Santa Clara, up some stone steps, you can walk all over the wall extension. The site is not free, but worth it for its beauty, for the view of the harbor. For those who love photos and story can't lose. Open until 5:00 pm

  • 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.
  • Worth going but the entrance is indeed a bit difficult to find. You have to enter the pateo of Igreja de Santa Clara (in the Southeast corner of praça 1º de Dezembro) and then walk a bit further around the church building.
  • A free landmark that everyone should visit. Amazing views of the Douro River
  • Great views of Gaia, the river and the bridge - very, very unvisited - only ones there at that time, while hundreds of folks were on the bridge.
  • Great views but a little difficult to find he entrance.
