Explore Porto and the North

Porto and the North: Porto (Oporto to some...) is Portugal’s second largest city, famed as the port from which Portugal’s legendary Port wine is exported. A city of granite baroque splendor and modern grandeur, including the 2005 debut of the Casa de Musica, the futuristic concert hall, designed by Dutch master architect Rem Koolhaas. Porto is the gateway to a region that is rich in historic cities, including Braga, Amarante, Guimarães and Bragança.
