Centro Histórico do Porto

The Ribeira is most likely the most tourist city of Porto. And there are many reasons that give it that status: the proximity of the River, the views of the bridges and boats Rabelo and the possibility to visit the port wine cellars, on the other side of the Bank, in Vila Nova de Gaia. For all this and for his patrimonial relevance, in December 1996, the historic centre of Porto has been classified by UNESCO as Cultural heritage of humanity.
