  • On top of Serra do Pilar, V.N. Gaia we have, of course, the most privileged location on the River Douro, on Porto and Gaia. Can also visit the Church of Serra do Pilar, unique for its circular shape.

  • I visited the city of porto and Gaia, I visited most emblematic sites, among them the viewpoint what fascinated me, have stunning views over the river and city of porto, is magnificent to vista I advise you to visit this site and can see all the beauty of this city as well as the beauty of the douro River and its characteristic boats. I advise a visit to this viewpoint and can get an idea of the beauty of the city and what's visit. The words sometimes does not describe such beauty that seems taken from a painting by any artist.

  • Great place to visit on the south bank of the river, just across the D Luis Bridge. It very nice place with high views over Gaia that really worth going there, by foot or by telepheric from Cais de Gaia
  • One of the best places to see the great city of Porto. Is located in Gaia, near the D. Luis bridge, so you must stop by before/after crossing the bridge. You have lot´s of room to take great photos and just chill looking at the sights. On a good weather day you can see as far as the sea!
  • Probably, one of the best place with amazing view at the city and the D. Luis bridge. And the architecture is very interesting itself, especially at night with all the lights.
  • View is amazing and unlike any other. However, don't bother paying to go inside, as it is mainly closed with little not being used by the active military now.
  • The view from here is amazing and the cool breeze makes it very comfortable to just relax there. I wasn't actually inside the monetary, but I have heard great things.
