Porto Travel Information & Yachts for sale in Portugal

Porto is a historical city in Portugal, situated slightly inland from the Atlantic Coast and famous for it’s Port Wine, which is actually aged nearby. The city tends not to be the most visited in Portugal, due mainly to the fact that it is a more industrial city than some others in the country, and also as its climate, with the cooling breeze coming off the Atlantic, is less warm than other parts of Portugal.

However, Porto’s long history makes it a fascinating place, with some wonderful old architecture showing what life was like here many hundreds of years ago.
