Ribeira do Porto

Porto

Located next to the Douro river, it is the most authentic area of the city. Here, you can wander among popular vendors who join in the conversation, choose an esplanade to rest or a typical restaurant to taste the Porto cuisine and regain strength. This site contains numerous monuments, from the statue of São João, work of João Cutileiro, which came to occupy the niche of Fonte da Ribeira that was empty for more than 200 years, to the Muro dos Bacalhoeiros (continuation of Muralha Fernandina) which constitutes a great place to enjoy the views from the banks of the …

Porto

Planned by Edgar Cardoso and opened in 1963 (although the Works began in 1957), the Arrábida Bridge was one of the more advanced architectonic works of its time. The 270 metres concrete span was, for some years, a world record on this kind of bridges. The arch spire has 52 meters and the roadway rises to 70 meters height.

Porto

The D. Maria Pia Bridge, built little above the D. Luís I Bridge, allowed the railway connection between the two Douro sides. Its construction, planned by Eiffel, began in January, 1876. It was built with great precaution because its only roadway is hanging at about 61 metres above the river’s water level. In all the construction were used about 1600 tons of iron, which didn’t even scratch its lines’ harmony and elegance. The works were concluded on November, 4th, 1877 and nowadays, although it is closed, we can still admire its beauty and usefulness.
