It's a very ancient and important city in the North of Portugal and, for their own people, the most important one.
It's the same name of the Port Wine because it was there that the wine was traded and we still can see a lot of brand names near the river. This boat, now for turism, reminds us the ones used for the transport of the wine from the places where ir was made to the town where it would be sold and shiped everywhere.
You can see here the Torre dos Clérigos.
Porto is a place full of beautiful gardens. This one is the Palácio de Cristal garden, now Pavilhão Rosa Mota. It was from here that I took most of the pictures I'm posting today - not the ones with the Torre dos Clérigos in.
I hope you, seeing these beauties, feel encouraged to visit Portugal because we have a lot of wonderful places, full of beauty and History. And good food also!
