One of the nicer and more meaningful tours I’ve been on. €9 for 40 mins seems a lot, but really enjoyed the tour, and learned some good historic points. Note the Arabic room as a masterpiece! Well worth doing.

Didn't do the tour this time but went inside to the wine tasting room. A really grand inner ballroom that is beautiful. Go on the tour if you can.

This is a mind-blowing place that is worth visiting Porto just by itself. The place will stay in my memory forever, a true icon that surprises and is just great for any architecture and decorative art enthusiasts.
