  • Nice shop. I bought a Rajao here while visiting this beatiful city. Shipping to Italy very cheap. Nice instrument, still kickin' ass!!!
  • We fell in love with this shop in Porto. We were treated very nicely and had expert help in buying a beautiful Mandolin. Now that we are back in the states we are looking for a Mandolin teacher so we can learn to play this great instrument. It really is a great place to visit and learn about these locally made instruments.
  • The one-stop shop for guitar lovers, specially hand-crafted classic portuguese guitars
  • Great shop, people, knowledge and service.
  • You'll not find a cheap bargain here, but the choice of local instruments and the friendly welcome make up for that. Grab any guitarra you want and strum away. Impromptu jam sessions do not seem uncommon.

Where to stay in Porto

Portugal's second city offers a healthy variety and quantity of accessible accommodations. The historical city center on the northern bank of the River Douro teems with hotel options, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses, which often have shared rooms, to upscale, luxury hotels housed in larger buildings and packed with amenities. All of these options place you conveniently close to the town's main sights, including churches, historical squares, and more. On top of that, many hotels on the northern bank boast good views from their hilltop vantage points. If you want to save big on cost, it's worth considering a more low-key hostel or small hotel on the less-popular southern bank.
