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 some cultural insight at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Museu Serralves. Palacio da Bolsa and Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco will appeal to history buffs. Next up on the itinerary: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, stop by Garrafeira do Carmo, learn about winemaking at Taylor's Port, and get interesting insight from Funicular dos Guindais.
