About Porto

Situated on the Douro River, in the country’s northwest region, Porto is Portugal’s second-largest city. This city is the economic, commercial, and industrial center of Portugal’s zone north of the Mondego River. Porto’s historic center became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, attracting millions of tourists every year since.

In Roman times, Porto was referred to as “Portus Cale,” serving as a thriving settlement on the south bank of the Douro River. A few years later, the Alani tribe established the city of Castrum Novum on the river’s north side. Throughout the next few hundred years, this metro area changed ownership many times – the Visigoths, Moors, Christians, and British all had possession of this city at one time or another.

Porto’s architecture is particularly noteworthy; this city’s shining star is the cathedral, sitting on the site of the Visigothic citadel. While this structure was initially a 12th-century Romanesque-style building with 14th-century Gothic walkways, it was renovated in the 17th and 18th centuries. Other ornate historic buildings include the Gothic Church of Sao Francisco, Torre dos Clerigos (a 246-foot historic tower), and the 19th-century-style stock exchange building.

In addition to the cobblestone alleyways and grandiose historic structures, Porto’s contemporary architecture is equally impressive. Casa de Musica and Museu de Arto Contemporanea are just two examples of incredible modern designs that add to the character of this city. Art lovers are sure to enjoy exploring the abundance of Porto’s public street art, ranging from graffiti along the medieval walls to “azulejos,” also known as hand-painted tiles.

One of Porto’s many appeals is the vast quantities of Port wine produced within the area; this popular wine is fortified and typically served after meals. While Porto has been exporting this wine since the 1600s, it became official in 1906. At this time, an act defined Port as a wine created in the Douro district with a strength of 16.5%. If you need some food to pair with all of that wine, Porto has no shortage of food options. Between fresh seafood, tapas bars, upscale steakhouses, food markets, and brunch cafes, there’s no way you’ll go hungry in Porto.

For nature enthusiasts, Porto has no lack of gardens, walking paths, and lookout points. Jardim do Morro is likely one of the most postcard-worthy spots in Porto; from this hilltop view, you can marvel at stately buildings, magnificent churches, and extravagant bell towers. Those who love to explore on foot will enjoy Jardins do Palacio’s lush, palm-tree-lined gardens with several sparkling water features. After a day of strolling and exploring, don’t forget to enjoy the views at one of Porto’s many trendy rooftop bars.

Between Porto’s stunning architecture, charming streets, incredible food and wine scene, panoramic ocean views, and lovely green spaces, you’ll never run out of hidden gems to find in Porto. The laid-back atmosphere, friendly locals, street art, bustling nightlife, and wine-tasting opportunities make Porto one of the most intriguing destinations for all types of travelers.
