Porto,/b>, the second largest city, is in itself full of interest.

It is built on steep granite hills overlooking the River Douro, with a mass of 19th-century narrow streets and alleys at its heart. The river is straddled by five dramatic bridges that connect the town with the Vila Nova de Gaia area, traditional home of the port-wine lodges and Porto’s largest tourist attraction.

The Riverside area of Ribeira is an enchanting combination of old-fashioned fishing district, elegant restaurants and smoky bars. Stroll by the River Douro and visit the bustling downtown area. Explore the shadowy lanes and grimy cobbled alleys. Must-sees include the 12th-century cathedral, the Clerigos tower and church, the astonishingly ornate church of Sao Francisco and the church of Carmo with its stunning tiled facades. Take a river cruise and experience the town’s five bridges from a river perspective, boarding in the Ribeira or near the Ponte de Dom Luis I at Vila Nova de Gaia. Join in the hustle and bustle of the Mercado do Bolhao, a lively street market in the town centre.
