Significant touristic center during the summer as well as in the winter, among trees, flowers and springs with crystal waters. The view of Pagasitikos gulf is amazing. The houses and the mansions are representative of the architecture of Pilio`s villages. Some of the tower-houses of Portaria were ruined in the years of the Germans domination and other by the earthquakes. Nowadays only four or five such buildings, with three floors, are saved. The first two floors are built with stones and they have thick walls and small windows. The third one is made out of more light materials and it juts out of the other floors. This floor, called "sachnisi", it was a place of reception or "mousafir ontas" as it was called, while all around the walls there is a row of real windows and another of decorative, painted (fake) windows. Portaria is 13,5km south-east of Bolos.
At the down side of the village, in the area of Machalas Koukouraba, a "dristela" is saved (that is a place where the women washed the cloths of wool and the carpets), remain of the years of the older economical bloom, when Portaria was a center of tanning and handicraft of fabrics.
In the central square, there is the church of Agios Nicholas and next to it the small church of Panagia the "Portarea" which gave its name to the village.
