TITAN OF LEIXÕES
Tour guided by APDL
Titans are monumental steam powered cranes and a legacy of the architectural and engineering era of iron and steam power. A mark of Portuguese and world industrial heritage, the Titan was used in the construction of the Port of Leixões between 1885 and 1895, in Matosinhos. After its collapse in 2012, many of the original pieces were kept. It was recently recovered, preserving many of its original pieces.
