Tawny or ruby? More than just port in Porto

As Portugal's second city, I was astonished to find Porto overlooked and relegated in guide-book parlance to the "off-the-beaten-track" category. Its neglected status is good news for visitors, though, making it less busy or expensive than the capital, but equally as charming. Liberal port and splendid views - sheer heaven!

Porto or Oporto as it is known outside of Portugal is a wonderful city in which old and new seem to coexist at every corner.

Technically called Oporto, this is Portugal's second largest city. Smaller than Lisbon and easier to navigate, it is Europe's City of Culture for 2001.

Lisbon is for having fun, Porto is for those working hard, Coimbra is the city to study in, and Braga is a place for prayers - a Portuguese saying that is rather horribly and clumsily translated. Here is my take on Porto.

Romantic Northern Portugal

The long sandy beaches and Atlantic rollers occupy some visitors the whole time they're here, but there's a wealth of other things to do, however. The second largest city in the country, Oporto is a gorgeous and romantic town that spills over steep hills near the river.

Porto, port and 2 trips

Porto regards itself as a working town. Some do not like it and it is true that there is some poverty such as one would hope not to see in Western Europe this century but there is much to see, especially if the head is permanently tilted to see upwards!
