Description from owner

Located in the heart of the historical centre of Oporto, these charming apartments are on the water front of Ribeira area, the most typical neighborhood of Oporto.

The apartments have a magnificent and exclusive view of Douro River, the monumental D. Luis Bridge and the numerous wine cellars that line the river in Gaia side. At the same time you stay near the attractions and historical monuments of the city and just 20 minutes away from Sá Carneiro Airport and 5 minutes away from the train and subway station of São Bento.

The apartment and its building are dated from the XVIII century and are classified by UNESCO as part of the World Heritage Site. Totally remodeled and decorated in a contemporary design this apartment is framed with the architectural scenario of Ribeira.

Northern Portugal region

As a trading centre at the mouth of the Rio Douro it is the second largest city after Lisbon with over 320.500 inhabitants.

The city has a number of distinctive atmospheres and this is very evident when comparing the various parts of the city. The quarter along the riverside known as the Ribeira is full of narrow twisting streets with houses once painted or tiled in colourful facades, and full of the bustling energy of working people during the day and the liveliness of busy "tascas" and restaurants at night.

Porto

Caves do Vinho do Porto (Port wine cellars) (Vila Nova de Gaia)

Opposite the centre of Porto, on the southern bank of the Douro river, numerous Port wine lodges are a prominent tourist attraction. This sweet, fortified wine is produced from grapes grown in the Douro region and transferred to the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia where it is blended and aged. Visitors can spend days touring the cavernous cellars along the waterfront (there are over 50 to choose from), while sampling dozens of world-class port varieties.

Sé Catedral (Porto)

Porto’s imposing cathedral was completed in the 13th century, although many aspects of the design have changed over the centuries. Featuring ornate carvings, paintings, sculptures and sacred religious treasures, as well as a marble chapel, a Romanesque rose window and intricate baroque azulejos throughout the cloister and terrace, the cathedral’s mesmerising grandeur is truly breathtaking.

Torre dos Clérigos (Tower of the Clergy) (Porto)

This baroque bell tower was completed in 1763 and looms high above the city. The tallest in Portugal, visitors can climb the 225 steps to enjoy the spectacular panorama. The adjoining oval-shaped Igreja dos Clérigos is an outstanding example of the synthesis of baroque and rococo architectural styles, featuring an intricate façade, elaborate engravings and a remarkable pipe organ dating back to 1774.

Casa da Música (Porto)

Conceived to mark Porto’s status as European Cultural Capital in 2001, Casa da Música is a dynamic modern concert hall dedicated to the creation and celebration of music. This cultural centre also offers guided tours and workshops and contains a restaurant and bars where visitors can relax. The myriad events range from jazz to classical performances, international DJs to world music.

Palácio da Bolsa (Former stock exchange) (Porto)

Featuring an impressive neoclassical façade, this striking former stock exchange was built in the 19th century. The building resembles a royal palace, particularly the ornate Arabian Hall (a replica of the Alhambra Palace in Grenada), which is used as a reception room for visiting heads of state. The palace has been majestically embellished with sculptures, paintings and frescos by numerous Portuguese masters and visitors can also attend cultural events and exhibitions, or enjoy a meal at the restaurant.

Museu de Serralves (Museum of Contemporary Art (Porto)

Surrounded by the extensive Serralves gardens, which is also used as an outdoor exhibition area, the Museu de Serralves was designed by renowned Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. Featuring an outstanding collection of national and regional contemporary art dating from the 1960s, the museum also hosts a selection of cultural events, including concerts and educational workshops for children.
