The city of Porto is a Portuguese city located in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula.

The city of Porto is known as the Invicta City and as the Northern Capital. It is the city that gave the name to Portugal - very early (c. 200 BC), when designated for Portus Cale, coming later to become the capital of the Portucalense county. It is also a city known worldwide for its wine, its bridges and ancient and contemporary architecture, its historical center, listed as World Heritage by UNESCO, as well as for its food.

One of Portugal’s internationally famous exports, port wine, is named for Porto, since the metropolitan area, and in particular the adegas of Vila Nova de Gaia, were responsible for the production and export of the wine.

Sights include the Tower of Clerics, authored by Nasoni and the Serralves Foundation, a museum of contemporary art. The Historical Center is a World Heritage Site, UNESCO. The Foz is another highly touristic area, considered the most beautiful area of the city, where you can enjoy the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean coupled with a beautiful and romantic promenade.
