  Praca da Ribeira, Porto
by antistar

A central point for any tourist trip to Porto, the Praca da Ribeira is a popular area, and with good reason. It sits directly on the river, and gives stunning views of the Dom Luis I bridge it sits underneath. The place is covered in a carpet of cafes, which stretch out along the river in both directions from the square. The Praca da Ribeira itself was a part of the original medieval buildings, but was remodelled again in the English style during the 18th century. It was inspired by the area of London's old docklands.

Directions: Underneath the Cathedral, on the river Douro.
