Description:

Discover how a visit to Praca da Ribeira (Ribeira Riverbank) can impact your mind. With rustic-red and turquoise colored rooftops adorning the Douro River, the old buildings are seemingly falling apart. However, they are well lived in with a rundown character that appears exotic and full of stories. Originally a harbor for commercial trading and UNESCO World Heritage Site (1996), Ribeira features beautiful structures in the plaza, including cathedrals, gardens, water fountains, markets and traces of palaces. Catch a view of Vila de Nova Gaia across the river where wine cellars are noted for making Porto and port wine famous. Build fond memories when you go backpacking through the medieval streets. Stop at a sidewalk cafe for a leisurely chat and observe boats sailing along the Douro.
