Fodor's Expert Review Casa da Música

Porto Arts/Performance Venue Fodor's Choice

Home to the National Orchestra of Porto and Portugal's Baroque Orchestra, this soaring postmodern temple to music was designed by legendary Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas ahead of Porto's stint as the European Culture Capital in 2001. There are frequent musical events, but the gravity-defying building deserves a visit even when the stage is bare. Book in advance for English-language guided tours that are given twice daily (three times a day from June to September).
