Porto



Today I got a card from Porto, the second biggest city in Portugal. It's historic centre has been placed on UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites. Situated on steep granite hills along the Douro river estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centres. The city centre is a jumble of narrow nineteenth century lanes and alleyways. Porto’s main tourist attraction is the Vila Nova de Goia district, which is the historic birthplace of Port wine.

Distance: 1,509 km (938 miles)
Travel time: 27 days
