Porto, located on the banks of the river Douro, is one of the oldest cities in
Europe. With a population of about 300.000, it is the country's second most
important city in terms of economic output and cultural influence. Porto made
its name over two centuries ago because of its connection with the Porto wine
industry. It was elected as "Porto 2001: European Capital of Culture" and
recently designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage City, a fitting recognition
not only for its granite sculpted beauty, but also for the unforgettable
panorama of its historic centre with narrow streets and typical houses arrayed
like a cascade right down to the river, and for its passionate history which
determined the country's destiny. The city's symbols are the "Rabelo" boat,
which can still be found docked on the banks of the river, the baroque Clérigos
Tower (built by the Italian architect Nicolau Nasoni) and the century-old iron
bridges, one of them designed by Gustave Eiffel. Porto is also at the heart of
a knowledge and business intensive region, offering several universities and
research institutes, which stimulate a strong connection with industry, the
service sector and IT enterprises.
