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.
Palacio da Bolsa and Torre dos Clerigos will appeal to history buffs. Head to Mercado do Bolhao and Casa da Guitarrafor some retail therapy. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Porto: Praia do Cabedelo (in Viana do Castelo) and Ponte Romana (in Ponte de Lima). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia do Carneiro, do a tasting at Graham's Port Lodge, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia do Ourigo.
