Regions of Portugal - Porto

The main industrial area in the north is the Douro, whose river runs down from Spain (917 km from source to coast), providing the vital font of life along the long valley from the surrounding hillsides down into Porto and the wine lodges (caves) on the riverfront at Vila Nova de Gaia. There are many links with the British, most of which are still visible today in Porto, the country's second largest city ( Oporto is the anglicised name for it, it is in fact O Porto = the port). About 1.3 million people live in and around Porto, participating in the many busy commercial activities of the area which, in addition to viniculture, also include the production of ceramics, cotton goods, sardine-canning and some farming. The coastline stretching from the Douro southwards is popular with holidaying Portuguese, although Atlantic winds keep temperatures to a less tolerable level than in the Algarve at certain times of the year.

Porto is a bustling city, but small enough to provide an enjoyable place to live.

Nearest Airport - Porto.
