It was a very pleasant surprise, specially because from the outside you cannot predict the interior beauty. Salão árabe is my favourite. Too bad there was such a big lineup and wait to get inside, but still worth it.

I went there in the beginning of January, so there were not many tourists. You can only visit the place with a guide. I was lucky that an English tour would start in 10 min. We were 3 people. The place is nice, great architecture...More

The interiors of this magnificent building are a must for visitors to Porto. We went on a guided tour - it may be the only way to see the building which is near the old centre of town.

You can only go on a group timed visit so make sure you check out what time you can go, depending on your language. Our docent was very knowledgeable & welcomed all questions. The Arabian Hall was gorgeous!

It is a very interesting building with a very interesting history! Take the guided tour and enjoy the wonderful interior! The information given is just enough in order to appreciate the history. It only lasts 20 minutes so don't miss it !
