This is one of Europe's oldest tourist destinations. Its wealth of artistic heritage, Port Wine, open-air leisure spaces and cultural life are just some of the reasons to visit this city.
The city unfolds along the river bank and the sea shore, to reveal charming vistas, inviting esplanades and all the pleasures of the outdoors, framed by its green spaces. But setting out to discover Porto means bumping into surprise after surprise. Whilst maintaining its welcoming and conservative nature, the city is, at the same time, contemporary and creative. This can be seen in its streets, its architectures, its museums, its leisure spaces, its esplanades and its shopping areas which run from the traditional to the modern and exclusive.
Porto’s Historical Centre was designated World Cultural Heritage in 1996 and its natural setting and its meandering streets give it a unique charm.
Port wine is present in the city in a multitude of forms and sensations: you can get to know it and try it, but never ignore it or forget it.
Having witnessed a long history of cultural ebbs, flows and eddies caused by successive waves of occupation, and often surrounded and invaded, but always remaining Invicta (unbowed), the city of Porto is really a living heritage, one that regenerates and reinvents itself, whilst maintaining its core character, grounded in granite and, thus, unshakeable.
An encounter between modernity and excellence. A new concept. A landmark in the northern region of Portugal. A remarkable project that gives the mouth of the Douro River with an elegant marina which will be a reference for art lovers to browse.
Situated in the Northwest of the Iberian Peninsula and launching of an innovative concept that reflects the importance of sport, leisure, wellbeing and profound respect for nature, the Douro Marina is much more than a recreational port.
