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.
House of Coimbra and Zet Gallery will appeal to museum buffs. Visit Bom Jesus do Monte and Santuario de Santa Luzia for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Porto: Centro Historico de Guimaraes (in Guimaraes), Galeria Mario Sequeira (in Braga) and Sernancelhe (Santuario Nossa Senhora da Lapa & Igreja Matriz de Sernancelhe). Dedicate the 6th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River, stop by The Portuguese Cock, steep yourself in history at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I.
