Espaço Porto Cruz - Multimedia Centre
Largo Miguel Bombarda, N.º 23, 4400-222, Vila Nova de Gaia - Porto and Douro
Facing Porto on the banks of the Douro
river, Porto Cruz is located in a unique area of Gaia. Meeting point of
merchants and fishermen since medieval times, here people crossed the river and
sell the famous products of "Cima” Douro. You can still see, now standing on
the banks of the river, the old Rabelo
boats - the hallmark of Douro.
The Porto Cruz building, renewed in 1881, has its origins intertwined with the history of Port Wine. A centennial relationship that lasts since the 18th century, when the first trades of this unique liquor were made.
The rehabilitation of Espaço Porto Cruz, in 2012, was inspired on "The Woman in Black" and intends to merge tradition and modernity, memory and future and pay a tribute to the Portuguese culture through its artists.

"Espaço Porto Cruz is a nice place to taste several ports. They take the time to explain the process. You have all the time to enjoy the port. Booking and conformation was simple and efficient. We had a combined ticket for 3 adults and 1 child. Nice that they serve a limonade with chocolates for children."
