We walked across the bridge to get to a gondola. We took the gondola down to the Port houses. It was a wonderful view of Porto.

I have been there during Redbull Air Race. The point features a great view on the city, the river and up to the sea.

This is just a short walk from the far side of the upper tier of the Luis 1 bridge and provides a great platform for views and photographs of the city, the river Duoro and the Cais da Ribeira.
