Venue Information
The city of Porto is easily accessible from abroad. Several airlines offer service to Francisco Sá Carneiro International Airport, located about 12 Km from the City Centre. On a brief visit to Porto, there are some places that cannot be missed. In the words of many visitors, this city has something mystical that is difficult to describe and which varies according to the place, time of day and light.
