Campanhã

Connected to the simple roots of the city, Campanhã is like an old forgotten folk song. The parish has a number of large estates from the time it was still in the outskirts of the town, as well as several factories whose activity has ceased.

What to visit

Freixo Palace

This national monument was projected by the architect Nicolau Nasoni and offers spectacular views to the Douro.

Quinta da Bonjóia

The Quinta da Bonjóia was acquired by the Porto town hall and is today the headquarters of various institutions. There’s no certainty on who penned the project but it’s thought to have been Nicholau Nasoni. It is a monument of national interest.

S. Roque da Lameira Park

With a green area of over 4 acres, this park once belonged to the famed wine family Calém. The park has a lake and a bush labyrinth.

Oriental City Park

Located at the opposite side to the city park, this is the largest green area of the eastern part of the city.
