Foz

I was recommended by a local to visit Foz and it definitely did not disappoint! The picturesque lighthouse and crashing waves makes the perfect background for your next Instagram photo! Located just 15-20 mins outside of the city center, Foz is the perfect place to spend a few hours exploring!

The murals inside of this station are what secured the station’s spot on the list of Best Instagram Photo Spots in Porto, but the station itself is quite picturesque as well! Be careful to not get too close to the tracks though, or you may be chased off by the lingering security guards.. oops!

      Hey! If you are referring to the sunset picture then this spot is super easy to find! Head across the bridge towards the Gaia side. When you reach the end of the (upper level) of the bridge, turn right!
