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.
Rua Santa Catarina and Taylor's Port are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Praia do Carneiro and Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral). Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Porto: Braga (Bom Jesus do Monte & Sameiro Sanctuary), Monastery of Saint Mary of Pombeiro (in Felgueiras) and Guimaraes (GUIMARAES, Guimaraes Castle, & more). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Praia de Lavadores, take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, enjoy breathtaking views from Torre dos Clerigos, and learn about winemaking at Graham's Port Lodge.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Porto trip itinerary maker app .
