DID YOU KNOW ?

Porto The City That Gave Portugal Its Name

Located along the Douro river estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European cities, and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. Its settlement dates back many centuries, when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. Its Latin name, Portus Cale, has been referred to as the origin for the name Portugal, based on transliteration and oral evolution from Latin. In Portuguese the name of the city is spelled with a definite article as o Porto in English the port. Consequently, its English name evolved from a misinterpretation of the oral pronunciation and referred to as Oporto in modern literature and by many speakers.


WHAT TO PACK

What to Pack?

Porto is a city in which the four seasons are quite clearly defined. When travelling to Porto during summer or spring, you will definitely need to pack some light clothes as the weather can be quite warm, but do not forget to bring a sweater as nights here are always a bit chilly. If you come during autumn, you’ll notice right away that things can get a bit rainy and windy around here so be sure to be prepared. Comparing to autumn, winter in Porto is much colder and dry than rainy and humid, as we say here it’s a kind of cold that gets into your bones so instead of an umbrella you should bring a big coat, scarf and a beanie hat. Whatever the weather might be during your visit to Port, we are more than sure that you’ll blown away by Porto and everything it has to offer.
