Riverside in Porto

While in Porto we took a walk along the Douro river. On a bright morning like this, while a little hazy, it’s easy to see why this area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

If you look around the area you’ll notice all the different Port Wine brand names (Calem in the photo below) as most of the port wine cellars and companies are located in this area, many over the other side of the river in Vila Nova de Gaia.IMG_0886

Perfect place for a cafe!IMG_0889

Looking over the river here you can see one of traditional style boats for the area, which these days take tourists up and down the Douro. You can’t see too clearly on this photo but the boats often have Port brand names on the side, and this one has the Ferreira brand. So this boat literally has my name on it! IMG_0891
