Discovering Porto

Discovering Porto involves encountering all the surprises one of the oldest cities in Europe can provide. 

The ‘Undefeated City’ has one of the richest artistic, cultural and historical heritages in Portugal, with churches, monuments and museums representing many historical stages in its evolution. Recognition came in 1996 when UNESCO classified the old part of the city as World Heritage, and in 2001 when Porto was European Capital of Culture.

Porto can also be discovered in a narrow alley, during a morning stroll by the River Douro or having lunch in Praça da Ribeira; gazing at the sunset from a Foz terrace or dining in a traditional restaurant; or interacting with the locals and enjoying their unique “Porto accent”.
