Like most attractions, you’ll find fewer tourists early in the day and later at night. The advantage with these timelines, in addition to the smaller crowds is the light for picture taking. You’ll get the best lighting and perhaps a sunrise or sunset – depending on the time you visit.
Great for couples
It’s a nice place for a stroll. Get a little more romantic with a walk in front of the water at Cais das Colunas.
Start exploring at the Augusta Triumphal Arch, then make your way to the Praça do Comercio centre square and check out the equestrian statue of King José I.
Then make your way toward the water and discover Cais das Colunas to dip your feet in the water (if the temperature allows it) otherwise sit and enjoy the sound of the waves.
It’s also an ideal spot to witness the sun setting, the sky changing colors and the clouds floating by.
