Porto: Why Visit Now?

It’s hard not to feel entranced by Porto, with its tile-clad buildings, romantic riverside promenade, and century-old wine cellars. Writers like J.K. Rowling have fallen for it, and so have older English generations who keep returning for its Port. The industry is still going strong, but over the years, this northern Portuguese city has found other ways to attract visitors, through its lively music scene, emerging art galleries, and innovative cuisine. - Joana Taborda
