Full of charm, Porto evolved from humble Roman origins to an epicenter of the Age of Discoveries and purveyor of Portugal’s “liquid gold”—port wine.
Unlike Lisbon, Porto survived the earthquake of 1755, preserving its uniquely medieval city structure and architecture. Its winding streets weave together layers of history and heritage, from its identity as proud birthplace of Henry the Navigator, to notes of Brazilian influence, to traces of opulence from Portugal’s peak as a world trading power.
