Marvel at the Romanesque Porto Cathedral, one of the oldest monuments in the city. Flanked by imposing square towers crowned with cupolas, the structure has been under construction since it was first built, but the gothic-like architecture has remained true to its time and is quite a sight.
Situated in the perfect spot, surrounded by sea, rivers and mountains, Porto's culinary scene demonstrates both the traditional and modern cuisine of all neighbouring regions.
