The Free Architecture Guide of Porto (PDF)

Porto, the second-largest city in Portugal after Lisbon, has a vast and interesting history; and its Roman, Celtic and Muslim influences have left behind a rich architectural legacy. This beautiful area of the Douro River has a surprising mix of buildings: Medieval religious architecture, contemporary structures by starchitects Siza and Soto de Moura and the prettiest and quaintest azulejo-tile houses you can imagine.

Walking the charming streets of Cidade do Porto might not be easy – it is often believed that the steep streets are the secret of local health – but the effort is definitely rewarding. Anything interesting in terms of architecture is here. If you find any mistakes, or have any suggestions please let me know in the comments. My intention is to keep it useful. Hope you enjoy!

Note: If you have some time to spare, make sure you check the stunning Ruta do Românico (included in the PDF) 😍
