Porto

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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Bom Jesus do Monte and Santuario de Santa Luzia. You'll explore and learn at Museu Nacional de Machado de Castro and O Navio Gil Eannes. Explore Porto's surroundings by going to Guimaraes (Guimaraes Castle, Centro Historico de Guimaraes, &more), Forum Aveiro (in Aveiro) and Se de Braga (in Braga). There's much more to do: get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, look for gifts at The Loja Amarela, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco, and do a tasting at Porto Augusto's.
