Porto Favorites List

Here's the list, our favorite things we did in Porto. Would love to hear all of your tips too! I'm always adding bookmarks to my Foursquare list as reminders of things to check out next time.








List after the jump!


CORAÇÃO ALECRIM
Maybe the best shop in Porto, and maybe even Portugal. Lifestyle shops are not as abundant in Portugal as other places but this one really nails the vibe. Vintage and new clothing for men and women, furniture, vintage and new home goods, indie magazines, plants, this place has a great and varied selection.

GRAPHITE (Pictured above)
This curated shop feels like a fancy gallery but with reasonably priced wares handmade by local artists.

GALERIAS LUMIÉRE
This galleria is small but packs a punch. It houses the coolest little coffee shop, a contemporary ceramic artist's store front, and a few very hip clothing and accessories spots.

THE FEETING ROOM
Urban feeling shop with men's and women's shoes and clothing and a small but desirable assortment of furniture.

MUSEU DE SERRALVES
Really lovely modern art museum. You can walk the grounds too, if it's not raining like it was when we went.

MAJESTIC CAFE
Almost a hundred years old, this cafe is on the pricier side but completely worth a visit. The decor, the intricate ceilings, the emerald marble floors... all just stunning.

CASA MARLINDO
Cute little hip cafe, serving laid back classics. Great for an easy lunch.

ANTUNES
O-M-G. Pernil de porco. Says it's a portion for two people, but holy crap, so much amazing delicious food. We had leftovers for dinner the next night. Very classic place, ambiance is a but eh, but food and value totally worth it. Be sure to get the rebanada as well.

CANTINA 32
Super delicious, modern restaurant serving takes on the classics and inventive dishes. The simple grilled chouriço was crazy good. I remember eating way too much. Smart to get a reservation.

BAIXA BAR
In a part of town that jumps alive and gets jam packed on weekend nights, we stepped in on our last afternoon in Porto to have a chill drink. The interiors kept us in beautiful company.
