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.
Explore Porto's surroundings by going to Bom Jesus do Monte (in Braga) and Guimaraes (Igreja e Convento de Sao Francisco & Centro Historico de Guimaraes). The adventure continues: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, explore the world behind art at Museu Serralves, and contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River.
