The second largest city in Portugal seems to have it all – great port wine, an imperial past, medieval architecture, and welcoming people. Adorned with cobblestone streets and 19th-century architecture, Porto is a rich city that will take your breath away.
One of the top sights in Porto is Palácio da Bolsa, a neoclassical palace built in the 19th century that commemorates Porto’s money merchants. The most impressive room in the palace is the Arabian Hall, whose walls are gilded with 18kg of gold.
Another impressive sight is the Som Luis I Bridge, one of the many bridges in and around the city of Porto. This double-decker bridge was the longest in the world when it was first built in 1886.
