Porto

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
Step off the beaten path and head to River Rafting & Tubing and Viagem Medieval em Terra de Santa Maria. There's much more to do: take in the views from Porto Bridge Climb, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, stroll around Parque da Cidade do Porto, and take in the waterfront at Ribeira Square.
