Considered the best European destination in 2012 by the European Consumers Choice, Porto is the most important city in the North of Portugal and its historical center is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Porto’s streets and houses are filled with history, magnificent monuments and interesting museums but also a thriving and cosmopolitan downtown area with a very intense nightlife, charming parks and gardens and traditional and gourmet restaurants.
Porto is known for its bridges that span the Rio Douro as well as its XIX century iron bridges, iron architecture, Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, Neo-classical art and traditional Portuguese buildings and balconies. Across the Douro is the Ribeira in Gaia that houses the famous and unavoidable port wine cellars, taverns and restaurants.
