5 bars with a magnificent view in Porto
1) Dick's Bar
Dick Yeatman was a well-known British personality within the port wine trade. This bar named after him is housed in Porto’s most luxurious hotel, The Yeatman. Set on a hilltop in Gaia, you are guaranteed to enjoy the very best panoramic views across the River Douro and downtown from its terrace.
2) Guindalense F.C.
Nestled alongside Porto’s medieval city wall (Muralha Fernandina), this incredibly humble spot belongs to local football team Guindalense. The view over the river and the bridge is really special. If you’re up for a bit of exercise, get here by walking up the steep alleyways from the riverfront. It’s a gem of a walk. Otherwise, take the funicular railway.
