    These walls date back to the 14th century and were completed under King Fernando, after whom are named: what's left, not much actually, was restored in 1920. Beneath them is the Church of Santa Clara.

    The wall jumps in the eyes when you come on the boat trip and also when crossing the bridge (D) Luis I over towards Porto. Yields beautiful photos.

    Known as the King Fernando's city walls. City walls are in the historical centre of Oporto. Of course is listed as world heritage. You can view the best views from the city walls of King Fernando, Igreja de São João Novo.

  • 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.
  • A must see visit in Oporto. Unique.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Vila Nova de Gaia

Located just across the river from Porto's Old Town, Vila Nova de Gaia boasts a distinctive identity of its own.You can take advantage of the area's trendy riverfront district and its world-famous Port wine cellars by staying in one of the neighborhoods just south of the bridges to Old Town Porto. This puts you within easy walking distance of the wine cellars, while leaving you in close proximity to historical sites across the river by foot, bus, or taxi. Farther from the river are several international chain hotels offering comfortable rooms with high standards of cleanliness. You'll also find locally run inns and bed and breakfasts in the heart of the city's more residential neighborhoods of Cravelos and Mafamude.
