Porto: the Douro City
Close to the mouth of Douro River, in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centers. Called Portus Cale by the Romans, it is said this is the origin for the name Portugal.
Porto gives its name to one of the most famous portuguese drinks, Port Wine, and by visiting the city you can still see the traditional barges filled with wine barrels transported down river to the cellars.
