Porto magnifico

Porto magnifico

Originally an outpost to the Roman Empire, Porto, Portugal is one of the oldest European centers. Perched overlooking the Douro river estuary, it gives travelers to this city a magnificent point of view. Being the second largest city in Portugal after Lisbon gives travelers a cultural feast in which to partake. And, having its historical center awarded a World heritage site by UNESCO. Well, that just elevates this bustling city to pure magic.
