Porto

Unvanquished City

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.
On the 9th (Thu), steep yourself in history at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco, take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and finally get the lay of the land with Walking tours. Keep things going the next day: don't miss a visit to Liberdade Square, make a trip to Livraria Lello, then don't miss a visit to Palacio de Cristal, and finally admire the masterpieces at Museu Serralves.
