Do some cultural sightseeing at Santuario de Santa Luzia and Bom Jesus do Monte. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Porto: Centro Historico de Guimaraes (in Guimaraes), Santa Casa Da Misericórdia De Viana Do Castelo (in Viana do Castelo) and Se de Braga (in Braga). The adventure continues: get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, and browse the different shops at NorteShopping.
