The most magical Porto Free Tour starts where the author herself admits to have written chapters of the first book of the Harry Potter series, the Café Majestic. Joanne Rowling lived a short but very intense period of her life in Porto and when she arrived to be a teacher she could never believe she would depart with a daughter and a manuscript that would change her life forever. Her life and the life of millions of readers. Throughout our Harry Potter tour, we will discover many places that were an inspiration to the author. But more than that, we will try and see the city through J.K.Rowling’s eyes.
Did you know Joanne Rowling got married in Porto? She fell in love with this enchanted city and the charms of a local journalist and some of the book’s most famous references came from the streets of Porto. We will wander around the city and discover places like the beautiful São Bento train station and the inspiring bookshop Lello, two of Porto’s most distinguished places. We will also get the opportunity to know more about the city and the country’s symbols like the ever present Dragon, the universities’ black capes or the name of Portugal’s infamous dictator.
There’s much more to discover in this one of a kind tour where even the less familiar with the sorcerer’s universe might be enchanted by the stories and anecdotes of our guides. Open your heart to magic and let the spell of Porto enter your life!
