Porto is the second-largest city in Portugal after Lisbon. It is one of the major urban areas of the Iberian Peninsula. The city proper has a population of 237,591 and the metropolitan area of Porto, makes it the second-largest urban area in Portugal.
Located along the Douro river estuary in Northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centers. The historical center was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. The western part of its urban area extends to the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. Porto settlement dates back many centuries when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. The combined Celtic-Latin name, Portus Cale, has been referred to as the origin of the name “Portugal”. Such distinction is based on transliteration and oral evolution from Latin. In Portuguese, the name of the city is spelled with a definite article o Porto. The English name evolved from a misinterpretation of the oral pronunciation and referred to as Oporto in modern literature and by many speakers.
One of Portugal’s internationally famous exports, port wine, is named after Porto. The metropolitan area, and in particular, the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia, were responsible for the packaging, transport, and export of the fortified wine. In 2014 and 2017, Porto was elected The Best European Destination by the Best European Destinations Agency. Porto is on the Portuguese Way path of the Caminho de Santiago
