If Lisbon shades it, Porto, the little-known northern city, nevertheless deserves a stay. This magnificent city built overlooking the mouth of the Douro is famous for its imposing bridges, one of which is signed by Gustave Eiffel, its historical monuments and its port production. On the banks of the river, the old fort centre of the medieval Ribeira district is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We walk through the cobbled streets crossing shops, cafés, churches and monasteries. Stop at the Baroque church of São Francisco and the fortified cathedral (Sé), the sumptuous Palácio da Bolsa (19th century), a former stock market. We stroll around the market admiring the stalls and eating specialities in the street. It is already time to switch to port, the famous local aperitif wine. You can stock up on bottles at the source and enjoy enlightened tastings. And above all, don't forget your pleasure, after port, try the delicious local cuisine, generous and strong in flavours, which puts fish and especially cod in the spotlight and all the vegetables and fresh herbs of the sun. Not to mention garlic! For night owls, the cafés remain open until the middle of the night and the discotheques take over until the early morning. But you still have so much to do! A cruise on the Douro, shopping in the shops of Santa Catarina Street with a stopover at the Majestic, the centenary café, listening to fado, visiting the most beautiful bookstore in the world (Lello)... Consult your tour guide to make sure you don't miss anything!
