Groupon’s Guide To Porto
Dating back to the 4th century, and currently a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Portugal’s second largest metropolis, Porto, stands as one of Europe’s oldest cultural and historical sites.
An ancient port perched along the Douro Valley, Porto is a cornucopia of architectural landmarks, museums and medieval reminisces. Among the most important architectural legacies stand the Sao Francisco and Santa Clara Church, where a rare mixture of Gothic and Baroque styles, represented by detailed carvings and opulent decor covered in pure gold, attract thousands of tourists every year. Famed for being the spiritual home of Port Wine, the city has been one of the most important wine trading centres since the 17th century, maintaining its leading role among the finest wine producers in Europe up to this day. Travellers may also admire modern art galleries cleverly combined with shopping centres, spread across the vivid and colourful Bombarda street, where a bundle of design boutiques, stylists and vintage shops form a world of their own.
