In this area
An area of constant renewal
With a big extension that takes us from the riverside, with the Freixo Palace, the marina, the Press Museum and the Quinta Villar d’Allen, to the University Campus, where most of the higher education buildings are located, the eastern part of the city is undoubtedly an area of constant renewal and a clear example of what it is like to live in Porto. A place of arrival and departure, Campanhã (the station) is undoubtedly the first place that most people see in Porto.
This is the perfect place to start this trip to the Dragão Stadium and the FC Porto Museum that impresses with its collection of trophies and the technologically advanced and interactive exhibition. Nearby you have an alternative place, the Alameda Shop & Spot, where you can slowly shop or also the Fair of Vandoma that takes place every Saturday morning, at Avenida 25 de Abril.
With a wide range of green spaces, in its four corners, from Quinta da Bonjóia to Jardim de Arca d’Água, passing through São Roque Park, Quinta do Covelo or Marques de Oliveira Garden (in São Lázaro), these are perfect places for those who want to wander or enjoy spaces to practice their physical activities. It is also in the eastern zone that you can find a wide variety of galleries and cultural spaces (Contagiarte, Mira Fórum, Olga Santos Galeria, CACE Cultural, ...) as well as some theatres, museums and the Municipal Library of Porto.
There are several lines departing from Campanhã Railway Station that connect this area to the most diverse points of the city and even to the airport. Ticket prices start at 1,20€.
With tickets starting at 1,20€, you can catch most of the lines in Campanhã and Estádio do Dragão Metro stations.
Campanhã Railway Station is the main station in the northern part of the country and receives all the traffic coming from Minho, Douro and Northern Regions and suburban routes. It has an interface with bus, metro, taxis and also has parking.
A walk along the Marina and to Palácio do Freixo, a walk in the Eastern Park or a visit to Quinta da Bonjóia, are always synonymous with a couple of hours well spent.
