Our Porto trip builder tool makes visiting Casa da Musica and other Porto attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Designed to mark the festive year of 2001, in which the city of Porto was designated European Capital of Culture, Casa da Música is the first building in Portugal aimed from its conception to be exclusively dedicated to music, either in public performances, or in the field of artistic training and creation.
Casa da Música's project was set in motion in 1999, as a result of an international architecture tender won by the project presented by Rem Koolhaas - Office for Metropolitan Architecture. Excavations began in 1999, at the old tram's terminus station in Boavista roundabout (Rotunda da Boavista), and Casa da Musica was inaugurated in the spring of 2005, on April 15th.

Looking at the building from the outside, I was not sure whether to love it or hate it. The important thing though is the interior. With a bar, a restaurant, an auditorium and an impressive show... more »
The tour is interesting—you get special access to the various VIP rooms. I would have enjoyed more history about the neighborhood as the focus is on the “prettiness” of the building. To see the main hall from the inside you need to go to a concert (not included in the paid tour). Seeing a show was absolutely amazing. By design, this is one of the 10 best concert halls in the world and its construction delivers. The sound produced is nothing short of heavenly.
Often free live music at the open air bar. Search for the events. I enjoyed my time there very much! A small Beer for 1.80€ or bring your own drinks and sit a few meters away
