An intrinsic part of the history of Porto and it's neighbor, Vila Nova de Gaia, lies within its relationship with that most famous Portuguese drink, Port. The hillside in the very heart of the historic area, edging down towards the Douro River, is filled with underground tunnels and caves housing the vintage tipple. The Vibrant red cellar roofs dominate the landscape and scream out to be photographed. You absolutely cannot go there without sampling this deliciously sweet red wine. A romantic city crammed with authentic medieval architecture, vividly coloured pastel buildings standing side by side with decaying facades, an intriguing selection of differently styled bridges spanning the water and a host of other cultural delights all make this Northern Portuguese metropolis a world class destination with something to please everyone. I blended a little texture with my original photograph in black and white to compliment the vintage feel of this old world Portuguese scene.
