The city with its own atmosphere.
Port — a stunningly photogenic, fun and interesting city, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to photoiskusstvo.info.
The number I have done photos for two days he became almost the main competitor to new York, which in itself is amazing. But it is logical to imagine that interesting city attracting tourists like a magnet.
And in this city to find a non-touristy corners?
After all, popular places in Porto are worth attention. For example, the old city at the Church of Clérigos (port. Igreja dos Clérigos).
Or streets around the Church Capela das Almas, entirely covered with the Portuguese tiles. The use of such ceramic tiles in the facades come from the East. The Arabs at the time brought into Spain and Portugal of glazed tile.
Traditional Portuguese tiles has dimensions of 14 by 14 cm.
Interest and tourist trams.
Deserves a lot of attention and a bookstore Livraria Lello. He is considered one of the most beautiful in the world and is popular for Harry Potter fans. Super tourist spot.
Pleasure to try the Francesinha (“little French girl”) in one of the restaurants.
Francesinha is a popular and unusual dish, sort of a sandwich with the Portuguese character.
Very “tourist” is the view of the embankment of the Douro river. This is one of the landmarks of the city, a UNESCO site. But this view is lovely and deserves the attention of everyone!
That only is lace the bridge of Ponte de don Luis, designed with the participation of Gustave Eiffel!
Steel bridge over the river Douro was built in 1877 before the world exhibition in Paris, which means the construction of the Eiffel tower.
Only in the tourist places you can find postcards of cork!
What about non-touristy Porto? I had to find three interesting and original locations, which not everyone knows.
No matter how paradoxical it may sound, but the first “non-touristy” place I found in the heart of the city.
The vast majority of tourists crossing the Douro river on the bridge Ponte don Luis I.
What if we turn off the beaten route, to dive into the hidden from the admiring tourists, the alley?
Here you can see another Port!
Under the bridge.
Untidy and authentic.
The main bridge of the city from a different perspective.
The second visited me a non-touristy place is also associated with the bridge.
The arrábida bridge (port. Ponte da Arrábida) is a concrete arch bridge, a national monument.
It opened in 1963.
This is perhaps the only bridge of its kind in Europe, on which you can climb from inside.
This place is located far away from the typical tourist trails, so little known.
