Miradouro da Vitoria: Fantastic viewing point to Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia

So whilst walking to the direction of Porto’s Riviera, I came across this viewing point—‘Miradouro da Vitoria’ on Rua da Bataria da Vitória that has fantastic rooftop views of the city down to Dom Luis, the iron arch bridge and the Douro River and the municipality across Porto—Vila Nova de Gaia where the port wines are stored and aged.

The municipalities, Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, both belong to the greater Porto district called Grande Porto.

This viewing point was not originally in my agenda, although I am always on the lookout for viewing points, and very glad, thrilled actually, that I bumped into this that offers beautiful panoramic views of Porto historical centrum and Vila Nova de Gaia. Enjoy the pictures!

Can you now see why I have fallen in love with Porto?

Wait till you see the panoramic pictures of Porto across the river from the Vila Nova de Gaia side, which I will be posting towards the end of my Porto travel diaries. They were simply adorable and breath taking.
