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.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Fri): admire the landmark architecture of Paco Episcopal, take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), then take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, then get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, and finally take in the local highlights with Walking tours. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular, examine the collection at Casa-Museu Marta Ortigao Sampaio, browse the fresh offerings at Mercado do Bolhao, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Cais da Ribeira, and finally make a trip to Liberdade Square.
