When we visited Porto and Gaia earlier this year, we noticed that there is a lot of statues and monuments across the cities. Instead of adding them into the same post, we decided to make a separate post about those work of art. Hope you enjoy them as much as we.
Igreja de São Francisco (Church of Saint Francis) is located in the historic center of Porto and was built in gothic style about 600 years ago. in the first half of the 18th century the interior was decorated into a more baroque style.
The church is located not far from the river Douro and its a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We visited Porto now in April, and the city is very beautiful. Even though it was a lot of people, it felt quite relaxed. Some of the photos are of and from Gaia, the twin city on the other side of the river Douro connected with several bridges.
Both cities has a lot of elevation changes, so be ready for some work out when walking through the streets of these Portuguese cities.
Esposende is a calm resort town in the district of Braga in the north of Portugal, about an hour drive from Porto. It is most popular for its beaches and water sport. We visited the city in April.
