Local Information

Known as the capital of the north, Porto is Portugal's second largest city and a thriving industrial centre, successfully blending commercial efficiency with an atmosphere of unpretentious charm. Rich from centuries of trade, modern Porto is as much a cosmopolitan centre as it is a city steeped in the historical events of the past. Magnificently situated on the great gorge of the River Douro, which spills into the Atlantic after its scenic 927 km journey from Spain, the 'granite city' is best known for its striking bridges and the much celebrated Port wine, which is stored and savoured by wine lovers all over the world. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in December 1996, the ancient Ribeira riverside district is a warren of narrow, twisting streets and shadowy arches. The ongoing restoration of this lively quarter is attracting a growing number of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Crossing the spectacular two tiered Dom Luís bridge brings you to Vila Nova da Gaia, the true home of Port wine. Here, visitors can tour the world famous cellars, which bear such familiar household names as Taylor's, Grahams, Cockburns and Sandeman.

The neighbour fishing towns of Matosinhos and Leça da Palmeira to the north of the city boast some of the best fish and seafood restaurants in Portugal.
