Šta ćete raditi

Adults only (18+).

This is the haunted tour of Porto, covering true stories but also legends of the Portuguese culture.

No one will jump on you dressed as a ghost or a dead person. I'm hoping to give you a spooky tour, not a heart attack.

Our tour starts at dusk, at the Virtudes Gardens, where the jewish cemetery used to be. We’ll talk about the Inquisition, and walk through the Vitória neighbourhood telling you stories from the 15th and 16th century, when this city was taken by fear and mysticism with the plague. You’ll learn about witchcraft in the Middle Ages making our way through the Cordoaria gardens, where an old factory burned down, and where an old prison awaits.

Going down the street, we’ll pass through the old cemetery of the criminals. Passing Aliados Avenue, you’ll hear about some important men who lost their heads to defend their country's freedom. To complete our evening we’ll visit the haunted train station of São Bento and finish our tour at the old and traditional tavern Pinguim.

We will walk approximately 2 miles in 2 hours, so no rush, and cover 13 stops with haunted sites and very spooky stories. We’ll finish our tour with a delicious fearsome drink to celebrate life but also the dead.

Other things to note:
No jumpy scary monsters. No kids allowed because of drinking restrictions and adult content — I spare not even one gross tiny detail.

I grew up listening to my grandfather tell spooky stories with a background of Portuguese culture and its legends. Add that to the fact that I myself love to tell stories and I'm getting my PhD in History and you'll have the perfect recipe for chills down the spine.

I love that History has a B side that can be told as legends and local stories. Should you trust every word I say in this experience? Definitely not. But you also shouldn’t dismiss it.

I've been living in Portugal for the past 10 years and I've been working as a local guide since 2013. I'm sure I can give you a very fresh and unique perspective about this city.

Excellent historical stories put into context of their times by a knowledgeable and experienced guide who is clearly well qualified to understand the history of Porto. Highly recommended.

If you are interested in the (sometimes dark) history of Porto Mariana is your guide! She has a lot of knowledge and knows very well how to deliver it. After we did another tour just the day before we were a bit worried we might end up hearing a lot of things twice but that was not at all the case. The drink in the bar is the perfect ending after walking for a long time. I highly recommend the tour to everyone interested in history. Mariana is a lot of fun to be around and the stories she has to offer really gets you to understand Porto and its darkest times.

Loved this haunted history tour with Mariana! Great to hear about the dark history of Porto from someone who is clearly passionate about it and wants to share it with travelers. Met some very cool people and I didn't have nightmares after this tour either, which was a plus! :)

If you're considering doing this while in Porto, please don't hesitate, just do it! It was the best thing we did while in Porto. Mariana has fantastic knowledge and is an amazing storyteller. The stories and locations really transport you back in time and make you think. We actually felt quite emotional at times. It was really great.

This tour was a nice surprise. I say surprise because I think I had “fluff” stories in my mind that would be told, but truth is always stranger than fiction. Every stop I found myself saying “DAHMN” lol!! The stories got more gruesome as we progressed. Mariana is very knowledgeable about history in general! Great tour!! She showed us nuggets we wouldn’t have seen on our own.

Not scary. Was a great historical tour at sunset of Porto. Loved walking the streets as the night descended with a guide who knew the streets and the history. Really happy we took this magical trip. I was taken by how safe the streets felt.
