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.
Visit Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Torre dos Clerigos for their historical value. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museu Serralves and Bom Jesus do Monte. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Porto: Coimbra (Museu Nacional de Machado de Castro & Portugal dos Pequenitos), Batalha (Capelas Imperfeitas & Batalha Monastery) and Fatima (Basilica de Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima & Basilica da Santissima Trindade). Next up on the itinerary: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, take in the exciting artwork at Belomonte 20, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco, and get lost in a book at Livraria Lello.
