Porto is Portugal`s second largest city and the world capital of port wine production. The city is situated at the mouth of the Rio Douro and five bridges span the river to link the city to Vila Nova de Gaia where the major port wine manufacturers are based. Porto is a lively city with medieval alleyways, baroque churches and wide boulevards lined with historic buildings. The Old Town seems to cling precariously to the steep granite cliffs and the district of Ribeira has many bars, superb restaurants and river cruises.
