Porto Holidays

Discover the rich history and culture of Portugal when you visit Porto. It was in Porto and the north that Portugal came into being as a country, which is why the region has such a rich and fascinating heritage. This is a mountainous area with rivers, natural parks and steep, sloping hillsides covered with leafy vegetation. The granite from its mountains was used to build many of the region’s religious and historical monuments, such as the unpretentious Romanesque chapels and baroque churches. History surrounds you when you visit the region’s castles - the castle at Guimarães was the birthplace of the nation’s founder and first King, Dom Afonso Henriques.

However, this region also owes much of its character to the great waterway that cuts it in half, the scenic River Douro, whose vine-filled valley is today classified as a World Heritage site. The river was originally given the name of ouro (gold) because it brings the water that the sun-drenched vines rely on to produce the world-famous Port wine. Another reason may be this was the place from which ships set sail in the great period of Portuguese discoveries. Or perhaps the name is due to the carved and gilded woodwork of the city’s countless baroque churches. It is now known as Douro River.

This ancient city gave its name to both Port wine and to the nation of Portugal. Much of its heritage is based on shipping and trade, making it a bustling and passionate city. Porto is also classified as a World Heritage site. Perhaps these are the reasons why Porto finds its way into the hearts of visitors.
