Matosinhos Terminal Cruise (Porto)

The Matosinhos Terminal Cruise is a cruise ship terminal located in the city of Matosinhos, Portugal. The terminal is located near the mouth of the Douro River and is one of the main ports of call for cruise ships visiting the region. The terminal is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including a passenger terminal, baggage handling area, and parking for tour buses and cars.

The Matosinhos Terminal Cruise is known for its convenient location, being near the city of Porto and other popular tourist destinations such as the Douro Valley, Guimarães, and Braga. The terminal is also well-connected to the rest of the city and region via public transportation, making it easy for passengers to explore the area. The main building of the terminal accommodates various programmatic components, including the cruise ship terminal, marina facilities, the Science and Technology Park of the Sea of the University of Porto, event rooms, and a restaurant. The architecture project was developed in collaboration with a team of experts from various disciplines to ensure its success. The construction was carried out in three stages, with the last stage involving the creation of a reflecting pool, a street connecting to the city, a marina settlement, and a small support building.
