Hotels in Porto

Porto, the second-largest city in Portugal, was a small Celtic village on the mouth of the Douro River. And as a large city, it offers a great variety of things to see and do during your time in town.

The new Catalonia Porto is in Praça da Batalha in the heart of the city and home to Santo Ildefonso church with its blue and white tiled facade.

The best starting point for discovering the city is Avenida dos Aliados in the centre of town. This street is home to City Hall and a wealth of Modernist buildings. A stroll along the street leads to Praça da Liberdade, the largest square in Porto and featuring a statue of King Pedro IV mounted on horseback.

One thing you can't miss because it is astonishing is the São Bento train station with its hall decorated in over 20,000 tiles telling the history of Portugal.

If you want a good panoramic view of the city, go to the top of the Clérigos church tower. It's worth climbing the 200-plus stairs. Another thing you won’t want to miss, especially if you're a Harry Potter fan, is the Lello bookstore.

If you like wine, cross Dom Luís I bridge to Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto’s neighbouring city, where you will find the port cellars of Ferreira, Sanderman and more. A good chance to sample the local fortified wines.

When it comes to transport, Porto is a very convenient city to walk around but if you want to take the weight off your feet it also has very good connections. The trams have become a tourist attraction and you can’t leave Porto without taking one. In addition to the trams, there is a metro network, a funicular railway and buses and as a last resort there is always a cab.

Porto has a varied gastronomic offering to sample during your stay in town. Cod is one of the dishes you must try on your next break in Porto. And soup. Soups are very typical of Porto and there’s one for every taste.

Discover this great city and let yourself be charmed by its nooks and crannies. Stay at the Catalonia Porto, a centrally located hotel where you can start each day with a bout of tourist activity free of transport concerns.
