Some pictures from our recent trip to the fabulous city of Porto, the second-largest city in Portugal with an urban population of 2.4 million people. Porto is situated on the Douro river estuary in Northern Portugal. Porto received World Heritage status by UNESCO back in 1996. Part 1 Departing on a typically grey day in the UK Although it wasn't long before the cloud was left behind and we saw the sun. Upon arrival in Porto a TAAG Angola 777 was parked. Our lift to Porto, G-OZBX (I couldn't get any further back to fit it all in and my finger makes an unfortunate appearance). An evening walk along the Ribeira (riverside in English). Surveying the numerous restaurants trying to decide which one to have dinner in (so much choice). They stretch the full length right up to the bridge.
