Unvanquished City

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.
Kick off your visit on the 12th (Sat): kick back and relax at Matosinhos Beach, do a tasting at Graham's Port Lodge, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River. On the 13th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: pause for some serene contemplation at Se de Braga, then step into the grandiose world of Paco dos Duques de Braganca, then learn about winemaking at Sandeman Cellars, and finally take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa.
