Overview of the tour in Porto

Porto was born with the Douro and the history of the city is inseparable from this wonderful river. That's why we created a guided tour that the city has long been asking for and deserving: the Free Tour of Ribeira.

From ancestral myths to political games worthy of a TV series, Free Tour of Ribeira tells the story of a town and its intimate relationship with the Douro and the sea.

In our Free Tour of Ribeira we will talk about the origins of the city of Porto, the conflicts between bishops and merchants, the centuries of Portuguese expansion around the world, the foundation of the Companhia das Vinhas do Alto Douro, fishing and codfish, port wine, unlikely legends and unforgettable heroes.

In times past the Douro was a brave and stormy river and no less tumultuous is the history of the magnificent Ribeira do Porto and we hope our Free Ribeira Tour will show it to you.

This activity includes:

  • Monument Church Of St Francis
  • Luís I Bridge
  • Ribeira do Porto
  • Miragaia House
  • Igreja de São João Novo
  • Bolsa Palace
  • Porto Cathedral
  • MUSEU DA CIDADE—Casa do Infante

Meeting point: You will find us in front of the cathedral, in the pillory.
First and foremost: dark blue umbrellas with yellow Freetour letters.
