Besides its heritage value, it is interesting to discover its urban personality and its very unique human character. Located by the mouth of the Douro River and with an architectural complex of extraordinary value, the capital of the north and the second city in the country has an attractive historical centre, classified as World Heritage since 1996, and a downtown area with businesses set up by new entrepreneurs, and a very interesting life. In the old part of the city, admire the typical housing and the granite monuments. 

Take the tram towards the beaches, the ride along the river is quite romantic and an alternative to the famous boat rides under the bridges. Either one or the other experience will offer you a different perspective of the city. Discover the downtown area and its pulsing city life, the movement, the intense commerce – for this is a merchant city – the baroque Porto.
