Destination Portugal: Why Not Choose… Porto?
Your stay in Porto, a splendid city located along the hills overlooking the Douro estuary, will be full of cultural, historical and gastronomic discoveries. And that’s besides the magnificent beaches, the festive atmosphere and Porto’s tasting events, organised by the local producers!
Both the area and the historical heritage of Porto make it an exceptional destination. Overlooking the entire Douro valley, the city unveils its old façades full of charm and its historical treasures over several kilometres before reaching the mouth of the river.
You’ll discover impressive architectural heritage, especially in the heart of old Porto with its remarkable monuments, such as the Se cathedral, the Church of Saint Francis or the Stock Exchange Palace. It’s not surprising that its historic centre is registered as a Unesco World Heritage site!
It’s worth going to the Ribeira district, along the Douro, and taking the opportunity to see the city’s typical houses, whilst admiring the beautiful view over the Dom Luis I Bridge, one of Porto’s symbols.
Cross the Maria Pia Bridge designed by Eiffel, with its ever so characteristic style, and enjoy the exceptional view of Porto. You can also choose to go on a mini-cruise along the Douro to admire the city and its surroundings.
For a relaxing break, you’ll find dreamy beaches along the coast beyond Porto.
If you love to party, simply head to the city centre, which is always very lively, to find a number of attractions, restaurants featuring Portuguese specialities, lovely bars and nightclubs. And it’s in Vila Nova da Gaia, on the southern shores of the Douro River, that you’ll find the cellars that delight Porto lovers!
