DESTINATION AND LOCATION
Pestana Douro - Riverside Hotel & Conference Center is located next to the Pestana Palácio do Freixo, just 4 km from Porto's historic center, 21 km from Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport and 2km from Campanhã train station, providing quick and easy access to and from the Hotel.
Porto is an ancient and amazing city, with historical monuments, rich gastronomy and stunning landscapes. Make the most of your stay and enjoy a port wine tasting in the famous Port Wine Cellars located across the river in Vila Nova de Gaia. The Palácio da Bolsa, Clérigos Tower, Serralves Contemporary Art Museum and Casa da Música concert hall are some of our suggestions when visiting the city. Be sure to find time for a specialty coffee from the iconic and centuries old "A Brasileira" café.
The building where the Pestana Douro is located today, results from the conversion of a historical factory in the Portuguese industrial panorama, built in 1888. The large chimney next to the reception is one of the living testimonies of this past. Through different administrations (Monteiro Santos & Companhia, Companhia Fabril do Douro, Companhia Alliança Fabril, CUF and Floral) lasting over a century, the factory produced candles, soap and vegetable oils, with an interregnum of 15 years for adaptation works.
Previously the space was used for various purposes until it was deactivated and finally adapted to this tourist project – the Pestana Douro Hotel.
