  • This place is brilliant. Learning about the old jail was great. I wasn't really fussed about the photography exhibition, they should concentrate more on the history of the jail. Really well worth a visit.
  • One of Porto's most underrated museums. Free entry, photography exhibitions, fab collection of old cameras, and a fascinating building with lots of history!
  • Very cool place. Its inside an old prision and has a very cool cameras museum. Totally free!!! Has a níce view to the city on some Windows.

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.
