Porto Travel Diary

this is the last blog post on my trip to Portugal, took me a while but now I've got them all up! our exploration of Portugal continued in Porto, the second-largest city of the country. we took a train to Porto from Lisbon and spent the next three days there. although the weather wasn't the best, we still got to enjoy the lovely city of Porto, its magic and the port wine



Ribeira

/ the view of the historical district of Porto - Ribeira - and the riverside from Ponte Luis I was indeed gorgeous. the bridge connects the city centre with Vila Nova de Gaia and its port wine caves





lovely spring flowers

 / spring was in full swing in Portugal and I was loving it

gorgeous patterned buildings

/ decorated with patterned tiles, most houses in the centre looked like this. so much beauty in one place even though a lot of the buildings were looking a bit run-down and sad

Casa da Música

/ a wonderful example of modern architecture in Porto, loved both the exterior and interior




Foz

/ we took a bus from the city and in under 30 minutes we were in Foz, the place where the Duoro river meets the Atlantic ocean. the view of waves crashing into the rocks was simply breathtaking



Praça da Liberdade

/ this square was a pretty central spot for us but this photo was taken during our last evening in Porto. what a gorgeous place even in the rain!
