Porto is Portugal’s second largest city after Lisbon. It has a plethora of ancient monuments to offer, as it is one of Europe’s oldest human settlements in continuous occupation. Since 1996 the historic city centre located within Porto’s 14th century walled fortifications has enjoyed UNESCO World Heritage status.
Perhaps its most famous local product is the aptly named port wine, a fortified wine consumed in most parts of the Western World, particularly in the UK over a slice of Christmas Stilton.
A tour of Porto’s many treasures should include the Torre dos Clérigos, the Palacio da Bolsa, the Episcopal Palace of Porto and St Francis Church, not forgetting Porto Cathedral in the historical city centre. The imposing cathedral dates back to 1100 and is one of Porto’s oldest monuments. Construction of the cathedral was finally completed n the 13th century, when its impressive Baroque porch and gorgeous Romanesque rose window began to dominate the city scape.
Finally, before heading back to the car park and the hire car, a refreshing cup of coffee at the splendid 19th century Belle Époque-style Majestic Café will revive the senses for the 3.5 hour drive back to Lisbon, using the A-1 route for the 196 mile journey via Coimbra.
