Vila Nova de Gaia



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.
On the 10th (Sat), contemplate the long history of Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular and then snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I.

Long accustomed to welcoming visitors from around the world, Porto District boasts a blend of attractions that include museums, galleries, restaurants, shops, historic monuments, and World Heritage-listed archaeological sites. The district's eponymous capital city serves as the gateway to the country's famed wine region, a leading supplier of some of the world's finest fortified wines. A paradise for sightseeing on foot, the historical city also features a well-preserved medieval quarter built over the foundations of ancient Roman ruins. Discover the city and its surrounding region on a boat tour along the Douro River, or head for the district's less-frequented interior to explore its pristine natural parks and rugged mountain regions.
