Discover the charming city of Porto in northwest Portugal, where the majestic Douro River runs through its city center and the port flows freely. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Porto’s historic center—and beyond—offers an abundance of culture, sightseeing, and activities. Stay with Inspirato at Le Monumental Palace, a five-star hotel in the center of the city with Michelin-starred dining and a luxurious spa with hammam.
Situated in northwest Portugal, Porto is a charming coastal city dating back to the 12th century. A maze of steep and narrow cobbled streets, the city is full of historic plazas, beautiful churches, and irregularly shaped houses with orange clay-tiled roofs. The designated UNESCO World Heritage Site has been nicknamed the “Cidade das Pontes” (City of Bridges), as it sits on the banks of the Douro River, housing six stately bridges including the famous Dom Luis I Bridge. While exploring Porto’s lively neighborhoods like the Ribeira district, you’ll find medieval architecture, talented street musicians, delightful cafés serving up traditional Portuguese cuisine—and, of course, port wine.
Situated along the banks of the Douro River, the Ribeira district is a lively medieval area dotted with authentic Portuguese restaurants, bars, and shops. Walk across the majestic Dom Luis Bridge, built in 1886.
