This tour offers a glimpse into Porto's rich architectural tapestry, showcasing the works of Alvaro Siza, one of its most distinguished architects. Whether you are an architecture aficionado or a curious traveler, the buildings and structures in Porto are sure to inspire and impress. Let's embark on a tour of stunning architectural marvels that seamlessly blend with their natural surroundings. Even though my degree is in Fine Art (Painting) and not Architecture, I have always been fascinated by the interplay between interior/exterior spaces, building scales, and how they interact with public spaces.
