Top 20 Batalha, Porto vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Directly south of Bolhão and its famous market, Batalha is an inner-city area that borders on the historic centres of Baixa and Ribeira. Like a lot of Porto’s centre, it was relatively run-down until around fifteen years ago, but has since undergone a cultural revival. There’s a wide range of nearby restaurants to try out, and some famous music and theatre venues. Some parts have a calmer, more residential vibe, but on the bustling thoroughfares there are plenty of options for going out – in particular, the area directly around the famous tiled São Bento Station is slightly more touristy. It’s very well connected in terms of public transport, with buses, metros, trains, and trams. If you don’t mind some hills, it’s easy to explore the centre from here on foot, and there’s also a funicular you can take up from the river.
