Porto Travel guide
Porto : Michelin's recommendations
Famed for the wine named after it, this lively city with its busy harbour traffic is the North’s capital, renowned as industrious, sober and conservative… It has much to offer: granite churches display all the opulence of Portuguese Baroque; the busy Ribeira and Vila Nova de Gaia quaysides enliven the Douro waterfront, so often hazy and unprepossessing; its historic centre has been well restored. In the sun, Porto appears radiant and colourful, inviting visitors to discover its charms on foot.
