Ribeira, Porto: 34 reviews and 71 photos

by micas_pt

[ Updated 27th April 2005 ]

Ribeira is a neighborhood by the River Douro. This is no doubt a must see when visiting Porto. Notice the architecture and feel the “typical” neighborhood. Watch locals, and you surely get a sense of “I am not in a big city”.

Narrow, colourful buildings, clothes hanging to dry on the windows, flower pots, Portuguese flags and most certainly FCP (Porto football team) signs, cats jumping from balcony to balcony, ladies on the windows watching passers-by and talking to neighbors, … a lot of details that you cannot miss. All this by the River … a mystic ambiance!

Surely, also very touristy, don’t fool yourself. A lot of restaurants and bars, packed with people on Friday and Saturday nights. No matter what you do when in Porto, don’t miss Ribeira by day and by night.
