  • The Romantic Museum or Quinta da Quinta Macieirinha (or Quinta do Sacramento) is a late 18th-century house (Museum and since the 20TH century 70). Recreates the ambiance of a 19th century wealthy house linked to Charles Albert of Savoy, King of Sardinia and Piedmont Prince who died here.

  • Located right next to the gardens of the Crystal Palace, is a Pearl of the city, unknown to many (even the portuenses). This is a King, with period decoration. Of your garden facing the River, there is a view that is without doubt the most beautiful of the City, an ideal place to make a photograph that will be a "Postcard".

  • Is really far from the center. Very desolate and it was closed. There's nothing else to visit nearby. Think twice before visiting  more »

  • Unfortunately closed for building works. But a lovely walk I the gardens to it.
  • I love going to preserved-home style museums. This was nicely laid out and had a reasonably informative audio tour. I prefer live tours.
  • We wanted to visit the museum on the last day of our trip to Porto. It says it's open until 17.30. We were there exactly at 17.01 only to see the doors close in front of us, and the staff refused to let us in as the last admission is at 17.00.
  • beautiful place, but the people are rude and dont even allow you to enjoy the full experience. its hard to buy a ticket if the person in charge wont even look at you because they're too busy. i loved it, but note its not easy
  • The house is pretty. But there is a limited number of audioguides... So you will be given an over-dated booklet. The museum staff directs you in the house. Free for students.

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.
