The best spots to watch the sunset in Oporto

Although Oporto is known for its greyish houses, small and tiny streets, there’s a lot of places where you can watch the sunset! Those places are generally located in the highest points of the city and offer a great view for the perfect end of the daytime.

So, if you’re looking for a cool place to spend some time after work or studies, here are some tips on pretty spots to watch the sunset on your own or with your friends, all accessible from U.hub Xior Residence!

1. Virtudes Garden

This is one of our favourite places in Oporto because it offers a green and airy environment where you can do a picnic during the afternoon and then watch the sunset. This place is chosen by many young adults as well because it’s located downtown and it has a supermarket and some coffee and beer shops near.

So, if you’re looking for a place where you can relax and watch the sunset goes through the Arrabida bridge, this is the perfect spot for you!

2. Ribeira

Definitely, this is the most known place in Oporto! Right next to the river you can walk, go take a drink, eat something or just sit there and enjoy the magnificent view of the Luis I bridge and the sun setting in the city.

Tourists love this place because it usually offers a lot of cultures too: some typical artists come to perform there. You might be lucky to watch some of its performances!

3. Morro Garden

Ok, we’re about the present you a pretty cool place to dance, enjoy some drinks and be full of a young life: Morro Garden! Located right next to the end of the upper table of Luis I bridge (Vila Nova de Gaia side) it is a great place to spend the end of the day: music, friends, and a lot of fun spirit.

The view over Douro river and the bridge is simply breathtaking and we are pretty sure that you’ll visit it more than once.

U.hub Xior tip: this is a great place to take your lover out, but also cool for a group of friends to spend the day!

4. The view from your residence!

At U.hub Xior Residence Campus Asprela, you have amazing views to watch the sunset! If you live on the top floor, you must already know it, but if you don’t our advice is to ask one of your friends who live there just to check out the sunset! It’s worth the view, we assure you.
