Unvanquished City

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
On the 8th (Thu), explore the activities along Douro River and then snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I. Keep things going the next day: kick back and relax at Praia do Carneiro, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Lavadores, admire the striking features of Paco Episcopal, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and finally take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa.
