Foz - Discover the Atlantic

Camões, our national poet, described the Portuguese kingdom as the place "where the earth ends and the sea begins". And what a beautiful coast it is!

You can take the tram ("eléctrico") right by the river Douro close to the Palácio da Bolsa and embark on a scenic ride to Foz, where the river finally joins the sea. Foz is considered to be the wealthiest neighborhood of Porto with beautiful villas and a sea side promenade filled with trendy cafes that almost touch the waters of the Atlantic.
