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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Centro Historico de Guimaraes and Museu Monografico de Conimbriga. Explore hidden gems such as Graham's Port Lodge and Igreja e Mosteiro da Santa Cruz. Explore Porto's surroundings by going to Praia da Costa Nova (in Ilhavo) and Livraria Gigoes & Anantes (in Aveiro). The adventure continues: learn about winemaking at Quinta dos Corvos, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco.
