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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Castelo de Tomar and Igreja do Carmo. Get some historical perspective at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Capela das Almas. Change things up with these side-trips from Porto: Guimaraes (Paco dos Duques de Braganca, Largo da Oliveira, &more), Santuario Nossa Senhora dos Remedios (in Lamego) and Fatima (Valinhos Sanctuary, Wax Museum of Fátima, &more). There's much more to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja de Santo Antonio dos Congregados, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia da Costa Nova, and see the interesting displays at FC Porto Museum.
