Overlooking the River Douro, Porto is one of the oldest cities in Europe. It is established and develops throughout the Middle Ages, on the north bank of the River Douro.
One of the most significant features of Porto and its historic centre is its surrounding landscape, resulting from the harmony of its lines and its urban structure, which produce its distinctive beauty.
The city was classified as UNESCO Heritage in 1996. To discover Porto is to uncover many surprises. Alongside its hospitable and conservative nature, there is a contemporary and creative city. Evidence of this knowhow can be felt in the streets, in the architecture and in the monuments, in the museums, in the leisure spaces, in the terraces and in the shopping areas.
