The River Douro arrives finally to its destination, where it can now rest together with the waters of the ocean, after having fought against strong streams and flowed under the six bridges that connect the two riverbanks, namely Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. During the Middle Ages on the right riverbank one of the most ancient European cities was born and developed, «O Porto»! Its historical centre is a landscape framework, the result of a harmonious combination of features of the land with the urban structure, that combined result in a set of rare beauty. Up the hill, the old houses still serve as a home to the local population and mingle with huge manor houses. To visit Porto is to let yourself be surprised. Its welcoming and conservative character hides a contemporary and creative city. The signs of this «know how to live» are felt in the streets, architecture, monuments, museums, leisure spaces, outdoor cafés and commercial areas. It is a city of poets, sailors, heroes and winners. And for that it is and was always invincible, fairly nicknamed the «Invicta» (invincible) city. It gave the name to Portugal and to the most famous wine of the world, PORT WINE! The city was classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 1996 and European Capital for Culture in 2001.
