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 6th (Tue), take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and finally get the lay of the land with Walking tours.
