Unsolved mysteries and endless secrets are hidden in the backstreets of Porto. If you want to discover the darkest part of the city, you can't miss this tour full of legends and crime stories.
Porto Crime Tour
At 7 pm, we'll meet at Carlos Alberto Square, next to the Monument to the Dead of the Great War. Right there we'll start a disturbing tour in which we'll learn about the darkest crimes that have taken place in Porto.
Unjust murders surround the statue in this very square. Do you want to learn about the murders that occurred in an unprecedented war? As we walk to our next destination, we'll pass by the old prison of Porto, which was built in the 18th century and was a place of damnation for hundreds of famous figures, such as the writer Camilo Castelo Branco. You won't believe the cruel torture methods that were used here!
Next, we'll arrive at the Hospital Geral de Santo António, a Neoclassical Palladian-style building built in the 18th century that harbors dark secrets inside its sturdy walls. Do you know what happened to a mad doctor involving a strong poison? We'll find out soon enough.
Our next destination will be the San Bento station, where some people swear to have heard and seen ghosts during the night. Then we'll go up the alleys of Porto as we learn about stories of warriors and battles until we reach the Chapel of the Souls, a temple shrouded in mystery!
Lastly, we'll make a stop at one of the best restaurants in the city, which also happens to have a very unique past. You'll be very surprised to discover what happened here!
After three hours of sightseeing, we'll end the visit at this last stop.
