_DS21089 – Porto Skyline
“Porto is the second-largest city in Portugal after Lisbon and one of Iberian Peninsula major urban areas. The city is famous for Port wine and soccer team FC Porto. Located along the Douro River estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centres, and its historical core was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. The western part of its urban area extends to the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. Its settlement dates back many centuries, when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. Its combined Celtic-Latin name, Portus Cale, has been referred to as the origin of the name Portugal, based on transliteration and oral evolution from Latin”. Photo by Alex Drop.
