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 Universidade de Aveiro (in Aveiro), Viana do Castelo (Santuario de Santa Luzia, Santa Casa Da Misericórdia De Viana Do Castelo, & more), Guimaraes (Guimaraes Castle, Centro Historico de Guimaraes, & more), Ponte Romana (in Ponte de Lima), Igreja de Aguas Santas (Igreja de Nossa Senhora do O) (in Maia) and Braga (Cathedral of Santa Maria de Braga, Sete Fontes, & more). Dedicate the 9th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: snap pictures at Ponte de D. Luis, tour the pleasant surroundings at Palacio de Cristal, take in the awesome beauty at Oporto Mountain Tour, and don't miss a visit to Avenida dos Aliados.
