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 11th (Thu), make a trip to Jardim da Rotunda da Boavista and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Torre dos Clerigos. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 12th (Fri): take in the local highlights with Walking tours, make a trip to Liberdade Square, then take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, and finally get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa.
