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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Wine Tours & Tastings and Bom Jesus do Monte. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Porto: Santuario de Santa Luzia (in Viana do Castelo) and Centro Historico de Guimaraes (in Guimaraes). There's much more to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, contemplate the long history of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), pause for some photo ops at Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular, and look for gifts at Mon Pere.
