Andre P.

Porto, Portugal

My name is André. I'm a historian, graduated in Oporto University and also a photographer.

Porto, one of the most ancient European cities, stemming from the northern bank of the river during the Middle Ages. One of the most significant aspects of Porto and its historical centre is its surrounding landscape, the steep river banks providing a dramatic setting for the old town. Both the streets next to the river and the surrounding countryside have been classified as a World Heritage sites by UNESCO.

I am passionate about Porto, both for its culture and for the History of this fantastic city.
I describe myself as an open-minded person, always looking for new things and meeting new cultures. It would be a pleasure to share my knowledge with you, to show you the historical and most secret places of this city, to make you feel the ancestral atmosphere of this city and capture in a unique way the images of this unique city, in the most spectacular places that I will show you.

Together, we'll enter into an extraordinary journey to the Medieval times through a private tour that takes you to the main spots of e Middle Ages, the medieval period, and the Moors.
Discover the history, the old buildings, the hidden secrets of the city, traveling the paths drawn from the city refounding times, after the city's reconquest to the Moors by Vimara Peres in IX century.
Walk by the XIV century defense wall with fantastic views to the historical part of the city and feel the atmosphere in a XII century cathedral. Next, stroll labyrinthic passages walked once by medieval knights and visit the house where Henrique the Navigator was born, the mentor of the Portuguese discoveries in XV century, and Master of the Order of Christ.

I invite you to come with me, to travel back in time, discover the secrets and live a fantastic experience that only the city of Porto can provide.
