Things to do Porto Legends & Mysteries Free Tour

Porto, this ancient city in northern Portugal, is full of myths and legends that often support modern beliefs. Our Porto Legends and Mysteries Free Tour invites you to get to know some of the best stories of this city and decide if they are real or just part of our collective imagination.

We will start our Free Tour of Legends and Mysteries where the city began, at the top of the famous Pena Ventosa hill, the Cathedral of Porto. If you go down to São Bento station, you will hear the story of the last abbess who inhabited the convent on which the station was built. And you will hear a spooky ending!

Porto is much more than the city of Port Wine or Francesinhas, and on our Free Tour of Legends and Mysteries, you'll learn why its inhabitants are called tripeiros (tripe eaters). Or why there are dragons on so many of the city's facades. You'll hear stories of murder, impossible loves, ghosts and even legendary thieves.

In Cordoaria, you'll hear about a creepy hanging tree and a book by Camilo Castelo Branco that almost didn't exist. We'll finish this spooky tour in the magical gardens of the Crystal Palace, where there are still a handful of legends to be unveiled. 

Porto has been the scene of revolts, sieges, heroic deeds, but also of the most incredible stories that will touch the hearts of the most incredulous travelers. Embark on this unforgettable journey and book your place in our Porto Legends and Mysteries Free Tour.
