Oporto

Main Attractions

Separated by the Douro River from the great wine cellars famous for which it gave its name, Porto is the second largest city in Portugal.

But although its ancient roots have been proudly preserved, a prosperous and efficient trade turns it into a modern city and its traditional importance as an industrial center does not diminish the charm and character of its old neighborhoods or even the bustle of the new avenues, lined shopping centers or quiet residential blocks.
The area around the Cathedral deserves to be explored, with its many monuments, such as the Renaissance church of Santa Clara and the crowded Barredo neighborhood, which seems to have not changed since medieval times.




On the riverside, the Ribeira neighborhood

Fascinating with its narrow streets

Typical houses and picturesque population: it was recently restored and now includes trendy bars and restaurants.

Equally lively and colorful is the Bolhão market, where you can buy almost anything, but close by are the most elegant jewelers and leather goods stores in Baixa.
The city of Porto offers many other attractions, monuments and museums, as well as an increasingly busy cultural calendar. With a well-known gastronomy and hospitable population, it is also the starting point for the unforgettable experience of going up the Douro River.
