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.
You've added Torre dos Clerigos, Livraria Lello, Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco, and other attractions to your itinerary. Popular historic sites such as Largo da Oliveira and Palacio da Bolsa are in your itinerary. Discover out-of-the-way places like Porto Augusto's and Capela das Almas.

There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja do Carmo, go for a stroll along the water at Cais da Ribeira, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.
