The district of Porto is equivalent to the very old and traditional Portuguese province of Douro Litoral.
Porto gave the name to Portugal, since it started from the old Portus Cale (its primitive designation), that originated the capital of The County of Portugal, in the 12th century. In activities connected to wine tourism, come and find a rougher Douro and one of the best wines in the world. Wine tasting is the highlight of any visit to the farms and cellars.
