The central square of Porto's most authentic quarter is called Praça da Ribeira. The square gets its name from the pier, referring to the bank of the river Porto (beira-rio do Porto). The first mention of Praça da Ribeira in royal letters dates back to 1389. Initially, the square was a center of trade-ships moored to the embankment, and unloaded various goods or freshly caught fish on the shelves. Then direct access from the river to the square was banned. Now, instead of fish auctions and shopping malls, there are restaurants and souvenir shops. It's a great place to eat and drink. Naturally with a premium to the price for the place and authenticity. For the right to raise a glass with a view of the huge arch of the bridge of Louis, you have to pay..

There is lots to see and experience in this beautiful waterfront area including of course the famous bridge. Many of the city's finest restaurants are in this area, although they are not necessarily the cheapest and of course lots of charming historic buildings. A great place for a meander, to soak up the atmosphere and for people watching.

I wouldn't recommend spending too much time there - I didnt feel anything special about it. The river is nicer at the quieter parts.

Impressive place. Many good restaurants in the area, but not very cheap compared to other parts of the city. Also, some boat cruises start from Ribeira Square

You will stroll through old buildings by narrow streets with ups and downs, and finally see the river with a small square space in front. This is where the Riberia starts.
