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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Igreja do Carmo and Castelo de Montemor o Velho. Get some historical perspective at Igreja e Mosteiro da Santa Cruz and Old Cathedral of Coimbra (Se Velha de Coimbra). Venture out of the city with trips to Braga (Sameiro Sanctuary & Se de Braga) and Parque Infante D. Pedro (in Aveiro). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Capela das Almas, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Santa Clara (Igreja de Santa Clara), explore the striking landscape of Celanus-Empresa de Turismo, SA, and stop by Garrafeira do Carmo.
