One of Porto's greatest charms is the Douro River, and the city crosses it along six wonderful bridges; besides the distinct architecture of each one, each one also has a story to tell. Through the waters of the imposing Douro, and aboard a boat full of charm, we complete the scenario of an iconic city in constant connection to the river in its different perspectives.
Here, the rabelo boats moved with their barrels of Port wine to the Gaia pier, and from its waters the fishermen made their living; we will meet the picturesque Afurada, once a fishing village, today one of the most appreciated places in a visit to Porto.
On the 6 bridges cruise, we discover and live the history of Porto and the Douro River, which when it reaches the estuary and becomes quietly immense, also fills our soul.
