If you are looking for a place with a special charm, Porto is waiting for you. The second largest city in Portugal is a city full of life and spaces you will fall in love with, which has managed to combine its elegant decadence with history, heritage and modernity. Its close relationship with the Duero river gives it its own personality, with its bridges, monuments, wineries, shopping streets and its delicious gastronomy. Not for nothing, its historic centre and Ribeira are listed as World Heritage Sites.
Every trip to Porto should include a visit to the Catedral de la Sé, its most important religious monument, and the Torre de los Clérigos tower and church, the tallest in Portugal and from where you can enjoy one of the best views of the city. The church of San Francisco and the Palacio de la Bolsa are other must-see places. Buildings, such as Casa de la Música, museums, such as Serralves or the School of Architecture are also icons of Porto's modernity.
Do not miss the San Bento railway station, with its more than 20,000 tiles that tell the history of Portugal, or the Casa do Infante, before discovering the Ribeira and Gaia. Enjoying the life, gastronomy and wine cellars of Porto next to the Duero river is one of the great pleasures that this city, with its restaurants, terraces and corners, offers to passengers.
Travel to Porto in the most sustainable way: by train. You have an international train between Vigo Guixar and Porto, which also stops in Valenca, Viana do Castelo and Nine, so you won't miss anything.
The landscape and vegetation of the Minho River will accompany you on this journey.
