Porto

Porto has been a bit run down but there are plenty of signs of a renewal. This is great news as Porto is a fantastic city, visually, historically and with wonderful people. Here are a selection of the huge number of photos we took.

A Rabelo cruising past the Cathedral. The Rabelo was the boat used to bring the barrels of port down the river from the Quinto where it was grown, pressed and barrelled. Now done by road tanker.
