Home of the famous Port wine and second largest city in Portugal, Porto (aka Oporto) is the Portugal's second largest city and one of the largest urban areas on the Iberian peninsula.  The city is situated on the banks of Douro River, in the Costa Verde area - rich in history and ancient monuments, vast golden beaches and pine forests. 

Main sights include the 12th century cathedral, art museum containing some of the finest masterpieces in Portugal, Saint Francis Church, with interior covered in 18th-century carvings, and Stock Exchange with impressive Moorish hall. Visitors should try a visit inland to Costa Verde's heart to see the historic Braga and shrine of Bom Jesus. Guimeres, the ancient capital and birthplace of Portugal's first king is also worth a visit.

The history of Oporto (fka Portucale) dates as far back as the 8th century BC. During the 11th century it was presented to Henri of Burgundy as dowry of Princes Teresa. Later renamed Porto, the town became a base of Portugal's shipping fleet, resulting in its maritime and wealth power.
