Welcome to Porto!
Discover the best European Best Destination 2012.
Porto is one of Europe’s oldest tourist destinations. Its wealth of monumental and artistic heritage, Port Wine, open-air leisure spaces and cultural life are just some of the reasons to visit this city.
Porto’s Historical Centre has been a World Cultural Heritage Site since 1996.
The city unfolds along the riverbank and the seashore, to reveal charming vistas, inviting esplanades and all the pleasures of the outdoors, framed by its green spaces.
Setting out to discover Porto means bumping into surprise after surprise. Whilst maintaining its welcoming and conservative nature, the city is, at the same time, contemporary and creative. This can be seen in its streets, its architectures and its monuments, its museums, its leisure spaces, its esplanades and its shopping areas which run from the traditional to the modern and exclusive.
Icons such as “Torre dos Clérigos“, “Serralves“ and “Casa da Música“ stand witness to a mature urban space, but one that is in constant movement. Events enliven the annual cultural and sporting calendars, culminating in “São João“, the city’s very own Feast.
At night, Porto turns into a new and different city, with entertainment and leisure opportunities that cater to all tastes and excitement that bubbles up to fill the streets with energy and cheerfulness.
The city is well located geographically and is able to count on a modern transport and communications network.
Getting to know Porto might mean letting yourself be taken round by someone who knows the city and suggests a visit, or venturing out to discover everything that this guide proposes plus everything else that that your trip surprises you with.
Give yourself up to the city, because it’s waiting for you!
