The adventure continues: explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, take in the spiritual surroundings of Nossa Senhora da Paz, and identify plant and animal life at Environmental Interpretation Centre of Caldeira Velha.

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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Museu Serralves. Take a break from the city and head to Praia da Luz and Rio Douro. There's lots more to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, do a tasting at Graham's Port Lodge, contemplate the long history of Sao Joao da Foz Fortress, and wander the streets of Rua Santa Catarina.
