  • An absolutely stunning church in the Lapa district. The church is huge and well worth a visit. The attached graveyard is also amazing and also worth a visit. More like a city of the dead!  more »

  • This church is a bit out of the way if you're staying at Baixa, but if your interested in history you definitely should pay a visit to "Igreja da Lapa" as this is the place where lies the heart of Pedro IV, King of Portugal and first Emperor of Brazil. If you want to watch one of the few occasions when the heart was taken out of its place, search "Coração D. Pedro retirado Lapa" on YouTube. If you want to get the historical context, try "Portugal: A Companion History" by José Hermano Saraiva.

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.
