Do not get drunk in Porto!

by Radka Sabova Strakova - 5 years, 2 months ago

I have experienced a few places in Portugal already - but I have never got such an impression as in Porto, the city of wine. My previous visit in Lisbon was a disappointment..or maybe my expectations were high..? With its location in the middle of Douro valley gives a perfect opportunity to produce one of the best wines in the world. Even a wine non-lover changed there into a taster. A significant symbol is located in the very city center - The Luis Bridge that spans Douro River. What I like most at this place is that you visit many local wine producing companies and have a free taste of samples or pay about 3 euro and taste various types of wine :) If there is a need to experience a beach atmosphere you can easily walk from the city center to the coast and see the "Cheese Castle" Castello do Quiejo where not even the strong wind could convince not to take a coffee and "pastel del nata" in the coastal caffeteria...
