1. Porto: City Highlights Guided Walking Tour
Porto is one of the oldest cities in Portugal and the one that gave name to our country (and the famous wine). Located on the banks of the Douro River, its historical area was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. Porto became an economic power during the Age of Discoveries, between the XV and the XVII centuries. Prince Henry the Navigator, the father of the Discoveries, was born here and the city became one of the largest shipyards of Portugal. In the early XVIII century, the Douro Valley was established as a famous wine region and it played a important role in the development of the city.
