Capital and gateway to the North of Portugal, Porto is both the city that provided a nation with a name and a fortified wine famous worldwide: Port Wine. With its splendid geographical location on the mouth of the river Douro and an architectural heritage of exceptional quality, the historic centre of Porto is a World Heritage Property declared by UNESCO. Its hard-working inhabitants are noted for their commercial enterprise, always standing firm against outside impositions and foreign invaders, which explains why Porto has become known as the “unvanquished” city. 

When discovering Porto, you will find a traditional welcoming, and conservative environment, but also a contemporary and artistic city. This is shown in the streets, in the architecture, monuments, and museums, and in the lively terraces, restaurants, and leisure areas.


Discover Ribeira: The historic center of Porto, also known as the Ribeira, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is known for its stunning architecture, including the Clérigos Tower and the Cathedral of Porto. The narrow streets and alleys are filled with traditional shops, cafes, and restaurants.
