4/36.- Porto, view from the cathedral


Porto is situated by the Douro river, not far from the Atlantic. Porto is actually a mix of 5 cities: Porto, Gaia, Maia, Matosinhos and Gondomar; small cities in the surroundings that were "swallowed" by the city. The old Porto has a population of 350,000 inhabitants, but the metropolitan area has 1.2 million inhabitants. One of its most famous exportations is the Wine of Porto. This wine comes from the Douro Valley, 100 Km east of Porto.

We’ll now take a walk through the old district streets and take a close look at the river Douro.
