This is not just Porto’s finest city centre hotel. It is the Infante Sagres.

BIRTH OF A LEGEND

The Infante Sagres opened in 1951. The vision of its creator, the entrepreneur and philanthropist Delfim Ferreira, was to endow the city with a luxury hotel on a par with the finest in Europe. Housed in a listed building, it contains a wealth of decorative features, such as exquisite ironwork, carved wood detail and magnificent stained glass panels from the workshop of Ricardo Leone, Lisbon.

The hotel is named after Prince Henry the Navigator, initiator of the Age of Discovery and the early Portuguese voyages of exploration. Also known as the Prince, or Infante, of Sagres, after the town where he established his school of navigation, he was born in Porto in 1394 to King John I of Portugal and Philippa of Lancaster, sister of Henry IV of England.

All rooms and suites are exceedingly comfortable bestowing a classic, luxurious decoration and understated elegance.

The Infante Sagres offers 75 rooms and 10 suites, all luxuriously appointed and individually decorated.

DISCOVERING PORTO & DOURO

Porto is a vibrant and picturesque city, the historic city centre of which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The medieval town tumbles down to the river Douro with its narrow streets leading into Portuguese Renaissance squares and Baroque monuments. With the brightly coloured city landscape backdrop, the views from the Ribeira and the River Douro are stunning.

The city is an exciting blend of old and new, thanks to its rich history, stunning architecture, hillside landscape and cultural attractions. Exciting restaurants provide a wealth of gastronomic variety from traditional fare, to trendy eateries and contemporary fine dining. Historic churches mix with modern art galleries, craft shops and street markets stand next to the latest designer brands.

The main tourist attractions in the historic city centre include Nasoni’s Clerigos Tower, Rua das Flores, São Bento train station, São Francisco Church, Palácio da Bolsa, Sé Cathedral, Lello bookstore and Ribeira, all of which can be found within easy walking distance from the Infante Sagres.

With a temperate climate and compact historical centre, Porto is best explored on foot, taking a stroll along the river front or taking in the sights whilst meandering through the many narrow streets.

Porto is also famous for its delicious Port wine and has remained an important wine capital for the past 300 years. Cross the iconic Dom Luis I iron bridge, or take the river taxi from Ribeira, and visit the Port wine cellars to learn more about the history and production of Port and taste the different styles.

THE DOURO VALLEY AT PINHÃO

DISCOVERING PORTO & DOURO

Porto is a stepping stone to the stunningly beautiful and famous Douro Valley wine region. Visit this UNESCO World Heritage protected area where the spectacular terraced hillside vineyards produce the famous Port wine grapes.

Just an hour by car from the city, many prefer to travel to the Douro by train, one of the best ways to appreciate the incredible landscape with the train hugging the River Douro upstream as it winds its way up to the vineyards. Visits to specific wine estates for tastings and vineyard tours, as well as local boat trips, can also be arranged. One example of this is the great Quinta da Roêda wine estate belonging to Croft Port, in Pinhão, where one can enjoy a picnic amongst the vines, Port tasting and treading of the grapes during the grape harvest season, which usually happens in mid-September.
