About Northern Portugal
Brimming with both history and natural wonder, Northern Portugal is home to Porto, the city that gave the country its name, as well as the important ancient town of Braga. Also here is Peneda-Gerês, Portugal’s only national park, a gorgeous wilderness area of mountains, gorges, water features and wildlife. Many picturesque villages and manor houses dot the countryside. Two areas are UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Alto Douro Wine Region, and the Paleolithic rock art in the Côa Valley.

I was lucky enough to visit Porto in October 2017, and headed back again in April 2018. Knowing how difficult it can be to plan a trip that encompasses everything the unvanquished city has to offer, I’ve put together a list of my favorite spots in Porto.

Infrastructure improvements and a new crop of hotels offer fresh enticements beyond the city. Romantic Porto, detailed with cobblestone streets, tiled façades and historic Port houses, deserves several days.17 items
