A Travellerspoint blog


semi-overcast 14 °C

Portugal’s second largest city; Porto was next on our list of destinations. We decided to check out some local sights; churches, a railway station covered with pictured tiles, a mixture of old and new buildings and the main river. The churches were definitely the highlight; one was rather disturbing yet intriguing with its skulls and bones, (human at that) in the bottom of the church.


Kieran sampled the local cuisine; "Francesinha" a sandwich four different meats, cheese and egg....hmmm


Next, Porto wine tour. The riverfront of Oporto is infamous for its port cellars so we decided to check that out. First stop a wine, port and chocolate tasting, yummo. Then a cellar tour and more port tasting. Definitely a sweet way to chill out for the afternoon.

Love the photos. Jim would give anything for just a taste of the Francesinha!!!! They certainly know how to pour a 'tasting' of wine and port - gotta love Europe!!
