Porto

Porto is located 300 Km north of Lisbon and its magnificent coastline is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean. The Douro River that flows into the sea at Porto, is a major waterway linking the city to all points eastward, as far as the Spanish border.

 

Overlooking the Douro River, Porto is one of the most ancient European cities; it was born and developed from the northern bank of this river during the middle Ages. One of the most significant aspects of Porto and its historical centre is its landscape, combining harmony with the urban structure and presenting a frame of rare beauty.
The city was classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 1996.

The richness of its monumental and artistic heritage, the Port Wine cellars, the many spots dedicated to leisure and culture are only some of the reasons that invite you to visit Porto.

When discovering Porto, you will find many surprises. Besides its welcoming and conservative environment, Porto is also contemporary and artistic. This is shown not only in the streets, architecture, monuments and museums but also in the terraces, restaurants and leisure and shopping areas.
