Porto is known as an undefeated city thanks to its invincible people and pioneers in discovering the unknown, leaving a trail of great heritage value in every street. Explore the city's historic landmarks.
Clérigos Church and Tower
It is unthinkable to visit Porto without visiting one of the most emblematic buildings in the North of Portugal. With more than 70 meters and 240 steps, the Clérigos Tower offers one of the best views of the city. Moon & Sun Porto, a 5-minute walk from the Tower, has a rooftop with a privileged view of the National Monument.
Stock Exchange Palace
At a distance of 12 minutes from the hotel, you will find the Palácio da Bolsa, a building characterized by its wealth and elegance. Rebuilt under what was left of the fire at the Convent of San Francisco, the monument is full of interesting rooms and details, such as the Arab Room, whose aesthetics refer to the Alhambra Palace.
Despite having begun to be built in 1336, in the reign of D. Afonso IV, the monument was only completed in the time of D. Fernando, thus adopting his name. To this day, only two sections of the wall remain, known as the Guindais Section and the Caminho Novo Section. Visit this 14th-century landmark with a 14-minute ride away.
Chapel of Souls
In downtown Porto there is one of the most photographed buildings in the city, which attracts locals and tourists thanks to its blue tiles that cover it. The Capela de Santa Catarina, also known as Capela das Almas thanks to the Irmandade das Almas e Chagas, is just 13 minutes away from Moon & Sun Porto, where you can see the art of Eduardo Leite.
