VIRTUAL TOUR

TOURISM

 

The 360º virtual reality tour of the Porto building, at Rua Ferreira Borges, in the heart of the Historical Centre and of the area classified as a UNESCO World Heritage, offers a realistic and immersive approach to the different areas and, from each one of them, allows you to get to know the history and terroir of the oldest demarcated and regulated region in the world and of the Denominations of Origin Porto and Douro.

To make this experience even more real, we recommend the use of Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift or other Virtual Reality glasses, which are optimised for use on mobile devices and desktops. iOS, Android and Windows devices are compatible with our 360º virtual tour.
