Touring the cities of work . . . and prayer
There is a Portuguese saying, "Lisbon
-- plays.... Braga.... Prays.... Porto ....works".
Porto is also called "a mui nobre,
sempre leal e invicta cidade do Porto" - the noble, always
loyal and unvanquished city of Porto, the city that stood
up to the French invasions and supported the liberals in the civil
war in the 19th Century. Porto people were and still are a little
suspicious of the South, especially the power established in Lisbon.
This area is called the green coast
and has an unforgettable tranquillity. This is the birthplace
of Portugal, and the four hour drive from Lisbon takes
you into a different, more European world.
Porto is Portugal's second
largest city. It is located on the river Douro, which provides
a beautiful, view as you approach the city. There are few bridges
over the river that provides various entrances to the city.
The Dom Luís I bridge, or as the people
in Porto call it - Ponte Luis I, is the most notable one
and the one that leads into the business district and the center
Porto is vast and monumental. It
extends roughly from the Câmara Municipal (Town Hall) at the northern
end of the wide Avenida dos Aliados to the riverfront Praça da
Riberira - but it is fairly concentrated and can be explored on
This area is very colorful. You can look
across the river and see the wine lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia
and the two decks of the colorful old Dom Luís Bridge.
If you drive over the upper level of the
bridge, you can stop in a small park area and view the beauty
of Porto from the heights of Vila Nova. Some of the pictures
that I took of the bridge and the river were taken from this location.
Porto is built on several hills, so the city offers many panoramic
vantage-points. Some of the best that I found were from this
side of the river.
There are many other places in Porto to
explore from the Town Hall down through the business district
to the Cathedral.
The Minho Douro is famous for its
Port Wines. You should visit some of the famous Port houses
in Villa Nova de Gaia, across the river from Porto. Another pleasant
past time would be to visit some of the Quintas where the wine
is produced. One of these is the Quinta da Aveieda a very
successful business in the heart of the Vinho Verde. It is located
about 30 km east of Porto and visitors are welcome for
a tour on weekdays.
The Quinta da Aveleda is considered
to be a model property due to a perfect combination achieved between
the exigencies of a modern, complex company and the simplicity
and serenity inherent to nature. This devoted way of taking care
and preserving nature is evident in the wine growing activities
of the company as it is in the luxuriant beauty of its garden.
