Porto, known as Cidade Invicta (invincible city) and one of Europe's oldest tourist destinations, is the second largest city in Portugal, the capital of the Porto district and of the country's northern region.

Its wealth of artistic heritage, Port Wine, open-air leisure spaces and cultural life are just some of the reasons to visit this city, whose Historical Centre was designated World Cultural Heritage in 1996. Its natural setting and its meandering streets give it a unique charm.

You can find more information about the city at tourist information offices or here.
