Book your journey in PortoPortugal
Porto, the splendid city of the wine.
Portugal’s second-largest city gave the whole nation its name. With their mélange of architectural styles, the cobbled streets of Porto’s historic centre have UNESCO World Heritage status. On the other side of the Douro river, granite houses and Port wine cellars crawl up the steep slopes.
To experiment the atmosphere of Porto, we advise you to stroll through the old medieval streets of the area of the Ribeira. In this old part of Porto, you can visit the La Sé cathedral from the 13th century and its cloister covered with the typical "azulejos" (earthenware tiles).
There you will also find the highest bell tower of the Portugal and if you’re brave enough you will climb up the 76 meters and admire the magnificent view on the town.
Discover the Port wine during a visit of a wine storehouse and learn about the process which change the wine into Port wine. It’s a science in itself!
