  1. 1. Defining a Destination
  2. 2. Oporto The city of Oporto was founded by the Romans and has been the main centre of the economic live of northern Portugal since those times. Successive generations have built of the steep hills that lead up from the Douro river. This rich architectural history makes the city of Oporto one of Europe’s most fascinating yet least discovered travel locations.
  3. 3. A day in Oporto The city of Oporto is divided by the river Douro as it makes its final few turns before joining the Atlantic. The river in only 400 meters wide yet has provided a safe harbour that lead to the development of a vibrant trading city. The Yeatman is in the very heart of the historic Port lodges on the south side of the river. A visitor can explore the old Port warehouses that welcome visitors and explain the famous fortified wine that took the city’s name. Both sides of the river have a vibrant café life that allow the visitor to relax and enjoy the dramatic huddled vista of buildings that rise up form each bank. A short walk over the famous double deck Dom Luis Bridge will bring you to the northern bank and the UNESCO world heritage city. The streets lead up to the cathedral many so narrow that they are not passable by cars. Oporto is a city built in granite which is often carved in magnificent detail. The Cathedral is a fine example of this as in dominates the historic part of the city. Indeed the city appears to be full of churches, many with magnificent tile decorations on the outside. A short walk into the city from the Cathedral will bring the visitor to the São Bento Station with arguably the finest tiles in the city. Heading back towards the river one can climb the tower of the Clérigos church designed by Nicolau Nasoni. The 220 steps to the top will bring the most unrivalled view of the city, views to create a lasting impression. A short distance away is the Palácio da Bolsa which gives an idea of the extraordinary wealth that was created by the merchants of the town. Next to this a visitor could catch a tram to the district of Foz do Douro and enjoy lunch on the beach over looking the Atlantic, or head for the Ribeira for fresh grilled sardines and the chance to see where Henry the Navigator, Portugals’ most famous son, was born and lived. Heading back across the river to The Yeatman and the chance to relax in the gardens, swim in the pool, enjoy the spa or simply watch the sunset from the bar. The sound of the church bells will mix with the screech of seagulls and the sounds of the city reading itself for another evening of charming entertainment.
  4. 4. A day in Douro Valley Oporto is on the mouth of the river Douro, some 100 km downstream from the vineyards of the Port Wine region. A visitor has a choice, take a boat from the quay and a leisurely cruise up the river, enjoying the drama of the landscape unfolding before your eyes. Alternatively one could catch a train from São Bento station and travel on the single track line that is considered one of the great train journey’s of the world. The railway was built in the 1870’s and, as a result of the damming of the river, is often only a few meters above the water line. However, a car journey of only one and a half hours from The Yeatman will place the visitor in the heart of the region; a region where you can enjoy a visit to a vineyard or enjoy a relaxing meal on the banks of the river.
  5. 5. The Atlantic Coast Below The Yeatman a visitor can take the purpose built path that leads along the edge of the river to the Atlantic coast seven kilometers away. This walk way passes through the fishing village of Afurada. A little further on it then heads south and provides access to all the sandy beaches, bars and restaurants.

  13. 13. Restaurant The spectacular panorama of the historic centre of Oporto and the Douro River form the stunning backdrop of the restaurant. Created with an environment of classic comfort the restaurant will serve imaginative cuisine that blends the traditional flavours of Portugal interpreted and presented with contemporary flair. A program of tasting menus with special attention to food and wine pairing will delight guests. The discrete yet attentative service will blend with the warm welcome for which the city is famous.
