About Porto – Portugal
Porto is one of the oldest cities of the country and, as such, its path is sinuous and picturesque. Located along the Douro river estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is also one of the oldest European centres. Porto’s Historical Centre was registered as World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. The city is traditional and historical, but also contemporary, which can be seen in its streets, its monuments, its museums, and in icons such as “Serralves” or “Casa da Música”, with a regular agenda of music, art and sports.
