  • You are on a platform on the edge of the Douro, with a tourist crowd. Align's bars and restaurants for tourists and takes place a small market for tourists.

However, if you want to find more typical, best and affordable restaurants, move away a little, not in the streets. The facades are cool and some bars more quiet (ponte pensil, for example)
