  • 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.
