advise

by carmena

Hello,
I'll be in Porto on 15/06 (if the volcano, ashes, strikes, financial situation, etc will let me) at around 22.00 in Campagna station. My hotel is near Sao Bento station. Please advise best way to go from Campagna to Sao Bento. If I'll buy a ticket, how long is valid?
Thank you so much, Carmen

There is a suburban (local) train service between Porto's Campanha and Sao Bento stations. You should be able to buy a single rail ticket to get you to Sao Bento from wherever you start from in Portugal.

There are trains at 2205, 2210, 2221, 2235 etc. The journey takes 4 minutes and if you have to buy a separate ticket it will cost you €1,10.

Sorry, if you have to buy a separate ticket it will be valid for one journey only.

Porto has a ticket pass system called Andante, which includes all the suburban trains, trams, metro and buses which you can figure out the following morning I think!

Re: advise

by Redang

I'd suggest to take a suburban train (www.cp.pt) or metro (www.metrodoporto.pt).

With the metro, you need to go to Trindade, then the yellow line to S. Bento, so, train is better.

Hi!

There are trains from Campanha to S. Bento station. To travel between those 2 stations you can either buy a train ticket (1,10€, single trip) or, since those 2 stations are inside Porto Metropolitan area, you can buy an Andante ticket with 2 zones (Z2 ticket, 0,95€, 50 min to travel wherever you want between 2 zones).
Actually both stations belong to the same zone (C1), but the minimum of zones you can buy is 2.

I did a review on Porto's public transportation. I hope you find it useful. - http://www.virtualtourist.com/travel/Europe/Portugal/Distrito_do_Porto/Porto-282453/Transportation-Porto-By_metro-BR-1.html

Travel Tips for Porto

Life in the street

by agarcia

Clotheslines; Porto's historic center is an amazing urban jungle of white sheets, socks and t-shirts, hanging in the street with a lack of embarrassment that, in the beginning, results a bit shocking to the visitor. But after a surprisingly small amount of time, you realize that this custom makes perfect sense in the context of the relaxed life of Porto. There, you don't hide from your neighbors, as they are a fundamental part of your life. There, a good part of the common life occurs in the street, as the streets are just an extension of your house, and not a scary place where you spend as less time as possible.

There, life seems to be much more exposed to the view of others, and in a way, that seems to make life a lot less complicated, and much more valuable...

Bridges

by micas_pt

Being Porto a city bordered by the river, it has lots of bridges connecting it to the other side - i can remember at least 5, ... The most famous bridge is undoubtedly Ponte Luis I and it connects Porto with Vila Nova de Gaia, where you will find all the Porto wine caves. There's a pleasant mixture of modern concrete bridges and some iron bridges dating from late 1800.

Sao Jao Feast

by magor65

The atmosphere of expectation can be alredy felt a day or two before the big night of June 23/24. In the streets you can see plenty of stalls selling herbs in pots, long-stem garlic and onion, plastic helmets and of course hammers made of plastic in different sizes and colours.
In the morning of 23rd people start decorating their houses and streets with colourful streamers and paper chains.
The whole feast starts late in the afternoon. Everywhere you can notice barbecues on the pavements, and soon the wisps of smoke can be seen all over the city as codfish, sardines and green pepper are being prepared for late dinner. At the same time streams of people are heading for Ribeira, most of them equipped with plastic hammers. OH, THE FIRST BLOW ON THE HEAD! I hoped to be only the spectator but it appears impossible. More and more people tap us, not only children, but also adults - even the elderly. No, of course it doesn't hurt, but the squeaking sound is a bit unpleasant, especially when you don't expect the blow.
We come to Cais de Ribeira hoping to find a free table in one of many restaurants. Unfortunately, all places are filled with crowds of people. By now, we don't react to the hammers any longer, the frequency of 'blows' is so high that sometimes it's even not possible to see the 'attacker'. The squeaking sound dominates over the people's voices. Now I understand why so many people are wearing helmets, although the blows in their case are a bit stronger.

Fishing

by agarcia

Fishing is an activity which requires of a lot of tenacity, discipline and patience; I respect all these qualities immensely, probably because of my total lack of any of them ;-) It is possible to accompany the local fishers during their morning excursions to the river. Just go there and talk to them... they are quite an interesting people to chat with... just remember not to put yourself to close to their fish-hooks :-p

Rosa Mota pavilion

by SoulFisher

Surrounded by the Palácio de Cristal gardens (Crystal Palace gardens) This sports and events pavilion was built in the site of the former "Crystal Palace"

The Crystal Palace (in Portuguese, Palácio de Cristal) was a XIX century building designed by the English architect Thomas Jones and inspired in London's counterpart. It was made up of glass, iron and... it had also granite.

It was demolished in the 1950's and this UFO like pavilion was build upon. The new building was designed by the Portuguese architect Carlos Loureiro.
It is a multi-function arena, used by industrial fairs, congresses, political meetings, concerts, theater and indoor sports.
Among the indoor sports, the pavilion was used for championships of a little known sport in the world but very popular in Portugal, specially in the north: rink hockey (or roller hockey).

I'll write a tip about rink hockey if I happen to see a match one day (and if they allow me to take a picture of the match). It is or it was the second most popular sport in Portugal after football. It is a kind of ice hockey without ice, roller skates and a hard ball. Unlike ice hockey it's slower, not violent and with technical dribbles that look more like football (soccer).

Besides rink hockey, the pavilion is used for other sports such as basketball or handball.

Some years ago, this sports pavilion was renamed as Rosa Mota pavilion, paying tribute to the the only Portuguese woman who won Olympic gold medals in marathon: Rosa Mota.
