Art and culture
Porto, World Heritage City of Culture, is the great gateway and can be the starting point for a trip for the natural and cultural diversity of the region. It is known for the wine that goes from here to around the world, but also by the School of Architecture, where the names of Álvaro Siza Vieira and Souto de Moura, both Pritzker Prizes, came out. And also for a heritage that knows how to combine the antiquity of churches and monuments, such as the Cathedral or the Church of S. Francisco, with the contemporaneity of amazing buildings such as the House of Music, the Serralves Museum among others.
Where to eat
In Oporto, visitors can taste typical and tradicional cuisine as “Tripas à Moda do Porto”, “Caldo Verde”, “Broa”, “Bacalhau”, “Cabrito Assado”, “Francesinha”, “Pão-de-Ló” and conventual confectionary. However, if this is not enough to convince you, give free rein to your imagination, because Oporto has exceeded the boundaries of the typical and tradicional to receive the best of the international and author cuisine. None of your wishes will be unfulfilled!
Porto is a charming city that can be discovered in many different ways, you can choose the different tours available and the type of transport that suits you best. Enjoy!
