The historic downtown of Porto is endowed with an outstanding set of monuments, with a unique architecture, and on the banks of the Douro River, which divides this city that was appointed in 1996 as Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.
It is the main production center of the world’s notable port wine, where you can go to wineries in Vila Nova de Gaia to see the wine maturing process, and even taste it. It should also be noted its well-known and wonderful gastronomy and hospitality of the people in this city.
