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.
Museu Monografico de Conimbriga and Livraria Gigoes & Anantes will appeal to museum buffs. Discover out-of-the-way places like Praia da Costa Nova and Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco. Get out of town with these interesting Porto side-trips: Centro Historico de Guimaraes (in Guimaraes) and Igreja e Mosteiro da Santa Cruz (in Coimbra). The adventure continues: learn about winemaking at Quinta dos Corvos, take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.
