Oporto Overview

Considered the best European destination both in 2017 and 2019, Oporto is a charming city, recently ranked as the second best city to visit in the world.

The city of Oporto is the second most populous city in Portugal. It is an unique territory rich in history, home of traditions, memories and great identities. It stands out for its particular architecture, the streets full of colors and sounds and for its gastronomy full of flavors.

It is internationally renowned for its wine – the famous Port Wine from the Douro’s Demarcated Region – and its historical center was classified as World Heritage by Unesco.

One of the most emblematic elements of the city is the Douro river, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. It was by the Douro river that the wine from Alto Douro’s region, considered by UNESCO in 2001 as a World Heritage Site in the category of landscape culture, was transported to the cellars, located in both Oporto and Vila Nova de Gaia.

There are currently 6 bridges crossing the Douro River, connecting Oporto to Vila Nova de Gaia.

The city breathes joy in every corner, it has a vibrant cultural scene and has been the birth place of several startups and companies. Art and joviality are synonymous of Oporto city.

Come to IBCC 2019 to witness the wonders of the city!
