One of Europe's oldest tourist destinations. Porto today is a city of culture, innovation and major economic development, which is increasingly sought after as a place to live and work. At the same time, it is positioning itself as one of the most popular tourism and leisure destinations, with more than 1.5 million tourists in 2016.
Porto’s Historical Centre was designated World Cultural Heritage in 1996 and its natural setting and its meandering streets give it a unique charm. It is a highly atmospheric place that has become known for its monuments by renowned architects - Gustave Eiffel's Dona Maria Bridge, Nicolau Nasoni's Clerigos Tower, Rem Koolhaas' Casa da Musica, or Siza Vieira's Serralves Museum. It is also the birthplace of Harry Potter, the world-famous fictional character created by J. K. Rowling while living in Porto, and home of Lello bookshop which inspired Hogwart's Library.
The most famous of Portuguese wines, the Port Wine, is traditionally produced in the Douro Valley and stored and aged in the cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.
