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.
Get in touch with nature at Praia do Carneiro and Praia da Luz. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Palacio da Bolsa. Step out of Porto with an excursion to Avenida da Liberdade in Lisbon--about 4 hours away. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia do Homem do Leme, take in the spiritual surroundings of Capela das Almas, explore the world behind art at Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis, and pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco.

For other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Porto tour planner.
