Porto, the second largest city in Portugal, was a small Celtic village at the mouth of the Douro. Today, as a large city, it offers a wide variety of things to see and do during your stay.

The new Catalonia Porto hotel is located next to Batalha Square, in the heart of the city and where the famous Church of San Ildefonso and its white and blue tiled façade is also located.

One of the things you cannot miss is the Sao Bento train station and its large hall decorated with more than 20,000 tiles with scenes that tell the history of Portugal.

If you want to photograph the best panoramic view of the city you should climb the tower of the Clérigos Church, it is worth climbing the more than 200 steps. You can't miss the Lello Bookstore either, especially if you are a Harry Potter fan.

Discover this great city and let yourself be seduced by all its corners. Stay at the Catalonia Porto, a central hotel where you can start your tourist route on foot every day.
