Porto ©
Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
Get some historical perspective at Palacio da Bolsa and Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Rua Santa Catarina and NorteShopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Bom Jesus do Monte (in Braga) and GUIMARAES (in Guimaraes). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), do a tasting at Taylor's Port, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Torre dos Clerigos, and stroll through Praia do Homem do Leme.
