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.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Fri): admire the striking features of Palacio da Bolsa, then take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, and then explore and take pictures at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral).
