Porto travel guide

Welcome to Porto! A vibrant city of picturesque streets, grey buildings, honest smiles and romantic aura.

Porto, still sometimes known in English as Oporto, is not only the second largest city in Portugal but also a city of great historical past and listed as UNESCO’s World Heritage. The narrow and labyrinthine streets of the old city centre will take you back in time while the cool and vintage neighborhoods will make you discover the new trends and the unique atmosphere of this historical yet modern city.

Winner of the “Best European Destination Award” in 2012, Porto is a city of contrasts: authentic and historical in its legacy, traditional and cosmopolitan in its attitude, adventurous and warm in its spirit. This is the city made famous by its nectar: the Port Wine.

Explore! The sinuous alleys of the old city centre where clothes hang on the balconies, colouring your walk. The cool and hip neighborhood where designers set new trends. The legacy of Portuguese explorers and the works of art of modern and contemporary artists. The picturesque streets where people smile and greet you when you walk past. And, of course, the seaside and the Atlantic views.
