Cais de Gaia

Porto's Stunning Skyline and the Taste of Port

Cais de Gaia, Porto


The views from Cais de Gaia are perhaps the longest-lasting images of Porto for visitors. It's impossible not to stand in awe at the city's stunning skyline, whose impact is further enhanced by the picturesque boats that float in front, and the soaring double-decker Dom Luis Bridge.

Breathe in the atmosphere from the several cafés and restaurants at the riverfront, and then visit the terracotta-topped Port Wine warehouses that stand behind them.

Most of the world's supply of Port is stored and aged here, and a visit to any of the warehouses should not be missed. If you venture into the alleys uphill, you will find 19th-century manor houses and even more port lodges (that of Taylor's is especially worth a visit).

It's best to come here in late afternoon and stay for dinner looking across to Porto.
