Full description
Explore the city of Porto through the lens of the magical world of Harry Potter. Discover the story behind J.K Rowling and her time in Porto and hear secret stories from a friendly local. Remember, you have to say "I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good" for the secrets to be revealed.

Get ready for your Hogwarts adventure. Visit the Sao Bento station, admire its beautiful tiles, and find the magical platform 9¾; don’t be late or the wall will bounce you back to the muggles' world. Go straight to the source of inspiration, the place where J.K Rowling wrote the beginning of the famous sorcerer's boy on a napkin, at a café inside an incredible Art Deco building. 

A true wizard should dress like one — visit a shop selling the university uniforms that inspired the student uniform at Hogwarts and you’ll immediately see the resemblance. If you're from the house Gryffindor, you’ll be proud to visit the Lions Fountain to see the house insignia and discover the inspiration behind it.

If you are a real Potterhead, the Lello Bookshop promises to brighten your day. This magical shop is believed to have inspired multiple places in the Harry Potter world. Skip the line and enjoy the stories. The magic of Porto inspired J.K Rowling in plenty of ways, even at one of the saddest moments in the books. At Clerigos Tower you’ll see why. Later, check out the place that served as inspiration for the famous Azkaban Prison and uncover the dark history of the fortress that not many fans know about.
