Portugals second largest city is known above all for its port wine, which is exported world-wide. Nestling in a deep gorge at the point where the River Duoro enters the Atlantic, Oporto is unbelievable picturesque particularly when viewed from the river, its UNESCO protected Old Town is equally impressive. An unpretentious and hard working city Oporto is at the heart of Portugals core industries and remains largely uninterested in tourism despite or perhaps because of this, this bustling and unselfconscious city will make you feel like youve travelled back in time. Moreover it is within easy reach of numerous coastal resorts and charming fishing villages famed for their numerous seafood restaurants.
