Porto Leixoes (Portugal) cruise port

Porto (aka Oporto) is the Portugal's second largest port city and one of the largest urban areas on the Iberian peninsula.  The city is located on the banks of Douro River, in the Costa Verde area - rich in history, ancient monuments, vast golden beaches and pine forests. The city covers a total area of 41 km2 (16 ml2) and has population around 1,8 million (metro 2,2 million).

From Leixoes cruise ship tourists can try a visit to the heart of Costa Verde and historic Braga (country's religious capital) to see the cathedral and the Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuary. Another popular attraction is Guimeres - ancient capital and birthplace of Portugal's first king.

Main sights in Oporto 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.
