PORTUGAL. 2/15. Porto

Thanks to my great swap friend Nuno!
Well, I must admit that whenever I hear "Porto", I associate it with the wine. There's so much more than that but it's understandable for a 10-year-old child who's just read "The Three Musketeers" for the second time to remember Portos and his favourite wine. :) I know I must fix this memory with a new one, let's say a visit to Porto. :)

Historic Centre of Oporto

The city of Oporto, built along the hillsides overlooking the mouth of the Douro river, is an outstanding urban landscape with a 2,000-year history. Its continuous growth, linked to the sea (the Romans gave it the name Portus, or port), can be seen in the many and varied monuments, from the cathedral with its Romanesque choir, to the neoclassical Stock Exchange and the typically Portuguese Manueline-style Church of Santa Clara.
