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.

Looking up the Rio Douro


Toward the cathedral


Down River


The Caves where the Port is matured in barrels


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.
