Porto, Portugal

Stop #29:

Porto is Portugal’s second-largest city.  There is a famous expression in Porto: “Coimbra sings, Braga Portugal’s second-largest city, with a population of roughly 280,000, considers itself the north’s capital and, more contentiously, the country’s economic center. Locals support this claim with the maxim: “Coimbra sings, Braga prays, Lisbon shows off, and Porto works.”

From Porto, Douro wine was mixed with brandy to preserve it during the journey and improve it over time.  Today we enjoy it at Port wine.
