In the afternoon, don't miss the opportunity to visit the famous Port wine cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. Learn about the production process, enjoy a tasting, and choose a few bottles to take home.

To end the day in style, watch the sunset, one of the most anticipated moments for tourists and locals, or attend a performance at Casa da Música. We advise you to check the available program for the day.
