City of Porto

Porto is the capital of Northern Portugal. Magnificently located near the estuary of the Douro River and with an architectural heritage of exceptional value, the historic center of Porto is a World Heritage Site since 1996.

In 2012, 2014 and 2017 Porto was elected The Best European Destination by the Best European Destinations Agency.

The city of Porto is an outstanding urban landscape with a 2000-year history. Its continuous growth, linked to the sea (the Romans gave it the name Portus, or port), can be seen in the many and varied monuments.
