    The building is located in the historic centre of the city, along the bank of the Douro River, and was renovated under the direction of the Pritzker-awarded architect Eduardo Souto de Moura. It is part of the Museum of Transport and Communication, founded on 21 February 1992, as a non-profit institution comprising 56 individual associates and 25 institutional associates.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Parque de Serralves, R. Dom João de Castro 210, 4150-417 Porto, Portugal

    Serralves is a cultural institution located in Porto, Portugal, and one of the most important of all the country. It includes a Contemporary Art Museum, a Park and a Villa, each one an example of contemporary architecture, Modernism, and Art Deco architecture. The Museum, designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira, is now the most visited museum in Portugal (more than 300,000 visitors per year) and one of the most relevant in the contemporary art circuit in Europe.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Casa da Musica, Avenida da Boavista 604 610, Porto 4149-071 Portugal

    Porto’s House of Music (in Portuguese: Casa da Musica) is right at the heart of the city’s exciting and so-phisticated cultural scene. It is a relatively new addition, having been conceived in the late 20th century, however it has gone on to stake its place firmly at the forefront of Portugal’s classical music offerings.
    The building itself was designed by the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas alongside the Office for Metropolitan Architecture and renowned engi-neers Arup, and no sooner was it completed, it became something of a cultural icon in Porto. It stands at an impressive 12 storeys high and bo-asts an eye-catching, irregular shape.
    Its modern styling is set off by its striking white concrete finish, in stark contrast to the traditional architecture of this city of northern Portugal yet surprisingly complimentary at the same time.
    Some have described the Casa da Musica as resembling a meteorite that has landed in the middle of the city. Others have labelled it an architec-tural masterpiece. Whatever your view may be, one thing that is certain is that the project invites conversation, attention, and controversy in equal measure.


    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Avenida dos Aliados, Av. dos Aliados 266, 4000-010 Porto, Portugal

    “Aliados”, as Porto inhabitants call in short and proudly to this large avenue, is Porto’s reception room. Some say this is our little Champs Elysées, but this designation is unfair for both sides.
    This avenue is a lively one and surrounded by beautiful buildings, with a very specific character that has much to do with the strength that people from Porto have shown throughout History.
    At the end of the 19th century, Porto witnessed a great growth as a finance centre, therefore many banks and insurance companies wanted to be pre-sent in the city. This transformation also led to the opening, around the area, of many luxury article shops, refined coffee shops and hotels.
    This development continued with the opening of the new train station – S. Bento – in 1909. However, the renovation works of the avenue did not start until the implantation of Republic, on the 5th October 1910.
    The project to enlarge the area of the avenue and of other main arteries of the city centre was initially designed by the British architect Barry Parker, in 1915, however it ended up being largely influenced by a group of ar-chitects recently arrived from Paris. Therefore, the neoclassical inspiration of Parker’s project was replaced by a “Beaux Arts” model of Parisian inspira-tion that the buildings of today’s Aliados avenue show. The City Hall was designed by Correia da Silva.


    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Serra do Pilar Viewpoint, Largo de Aviz Mosteiro da Serra do Pilar, Vila Nova de Gaia 4430-329 Portugal

    One of the best viewpoints in all of the city. World Cultural Heritage, it started being built in 1538, and was concluded only around 1670. At first it was created in order to accommodate the Augustinian Friars of the Monastery of Grijó. Later, during the Civil War of 1832-1834, the liberal army settled in the monastery. As a result of the war and of the constant attacks it suffered, it was in a terrible state of disrepair and neglect, until in 1834 with the creation of the Royal Brotherhood of Lady of the Pilar, and later the Group of Friends of the Monastery of Serra do Pilar, in 1925, the whole building was recovered. The church, of circular plan, has the dome surrounded by a balcony; the cloister is also circular, with 36 Ionic columns, the only example in Portugal. From its grand terrace one can see the whole riverside area of Porto and Gaia until the Arrábida Bridge, and the historic center, with emphasis on the Cathedral and D. Luís I bridge. In the opposite direction one can see that the zone of Fontainhas and the São João bridge.
