Porto see + do

Porto's showpiece is the UNESCO World Heritage area around the Ribeira waterfront, an ancient labyrinth of intimate squares, hidden gardens, scenic alleyways, and gorgeous town houses. Don't miss the extraordinary architecture of buildings such as the Baroque Sé Cathedral, Torre dos Clérigos, the São Bento Railway Station, and the old Stock Exchange. The city gave its name to port wine, so it's only fitting that you should tour at least a couple of port wine lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia on the south bank of the Douro River. Back in Porto proper, check out the city's stellar blend of old and new. The art collection and gardens at Museu Serralves are a must-see, as is a performance at the Rem Koolhaas–designed Casa da Música concert hall.
