Visiting Porto, Portugal

Posted by Nads on October 10, 2012

 

While in Europe this summer, we decided to spend the bulk of our holiday in Portugal.  I’ve heard mixed reviews over the years, but it’s been on my bucket list of places to visit for a long long time.  An enormous coastline, loads of fresh fish and a fairly understated and laid back vibe scores high on my vacation pre-requisites, so I was eager to get exploring.

 We landed in Porto where we wandered around for a couple of days getting climatized.  Porto is Portugal’s second largest city and one of Europe’s oldest known ports.  It was actually recently named a UNESCO World Heritage site and is known world wide for it’s production of Port wine (see my previous post on Burmester Port).  Winding streets house shops and boutiques and tons of restaurants dot the coast of the Duoro River.

It is a fantastic blend of old and new and a great start to kick off our visit.  Here are some snaps of our time there – check it out.
