  • The National Photography Museum, located in Porto's city center is inside an amazing building once used as a Jail and as a Court of Appeal. The edifice is impressive by it's size and sophisticated arc...  more »
  • Nice conversion of this building to the sinister past. Naturally, self-interest will vary depending on your sensitivity to the works presented, but the inside of the prison is worth the glance to him alone. It's free, and it's fresh :-), no reason to not have a hook.

  • Interesting structure, even a structural factor, as well as historical. Worth the visit since it's free

  • Beautiful place that used to be a jail you can still see marks of that period. Prisoners used to be kept in cells following their status in the society under Franco and before him. Now this chapter is gone the centre welcomes exhibition of marvellous artists from all over the world. Go check it
  • Well done museum that is free to the public. The space is great and the equipment exhibit was very interesting. Not the most memorable place but worth a 30 to 45 minute visit.
  • The building itself already has interesting architecture. Very nice collection on top floor.
  • Really nice museum. Can't believe it is free. Good permanent collection and the building itself is really nice as well.
  • Best place to visit if you are here. Hope that the bookshop will be openned more frequent. Enjoy your stay and put it on the musts.

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.
