The history of Porto lives in the streets of Foz, where the Douro gives way to the Atlantic and mornings blend into evenings. There is something about this seaside neighbourhood that hits home. Could it be the tranquil power of the Atlantic? That helps, certainly, but this fishing village turned high-class hotspot turned something between the two gets a lot of things right when it comes to enjoyment.
Philosophical musings aside, Foz is one of the most beautiful areas in Porto. The promenades here are neverending, extending into the horizon as a treasure-trove of fantastic restaurants competes for your appetite, the life-giving water protected by the remains of fortresses. These are the best things to do in Foz, Porto’s most marvellous neighbourhood.
