SURROUNDINGS / REGION
Porto is an enchanting city, established on the hills at the mouth of the Douro river. Designated an UNESCO World Heritage site for its historic buildings and outstanding monuments, highlights of Portugals second largest city include the formidable Porto cathedral, the Torre dos Clérigos and the conspicuous Port wine lodges that dominate the hillside of Vila Nova de Gaia. Although largely industrialised, Porto offers a compelling synthesis of ancient and contemporary attractions.
Some places to see
Caves do Vinho do Porto (Port wine cellars) (Vila Nova de Gaia):
Opposite the centre of Porto, on the southern bank of the Douro river, numerous Port wine lodges are a prominent tourist attraction. This sweet, fortified wine is produced from grapes grown in the Douro region and transferred to the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia where it is blended and aged. Visitors can spend days touring the cavernous cellars along the waterfront (there are over 50 to choose from), while sampling dozens of world-class port varieties.
Sé Catedral (Porto):
Portos imposing cathedral was completed in the 13th century, although many aspects of the design have changed over the centuries. Featuring ornate carvings, paintings, sculptures and sacred religious treasures, as well as a marble chapel, a Romanesque rose window and intricate baroque azulejos throughout the cloister and terrace, the cathedrals mesmerising grandeur is truly breathtaking.
Torre dos Clérigos (Tower of the Clergy) (Porto):
This baroque bell tower was completed in 1763 and looms high above the city. The tallest in Portugal, visitors can climb the 225 steps to enjoy the spectacular panorama. The adjoining oval-shaped Igreja dos Clérigos is an outstanding example of the synthesis of baroque and rococo architectural styles, featuring an intricate façade, elaborate engravings and a remarkable pipe organ dating back to 1774.
Porto at night
Porto is a very different city during the day than at night, because the nightlife in Porto is the most recommended and very interesting especially to enjoy spring and summer, when we can enjoy a better time. The center of the city seal of many tourists and citizens of Porto who want to enjoy drink in bars and other night spots that are typical in this city and part of the nightlife of Porto.
Apart from the premises to take any drink, it is normal to know BAIXA( porto downtown) to enjoy a night out in Porto and also highly recommended to at least know. The clubs are also popular places for all who are in the street at night in Porto and is both a city that offers many options that everyone can enjoy what you like. If you want to enjoy the fado or if you feel like dancing, Porto will find options to enjoy.
The number of places that open at night is very important. The summer months are best for enjoying the nightlife in Porto and must travel with a lot of energy to enjoy during the day and to enjoy much of the night, so take a long trip for a place like Porto a city that is great and gives you many options.
