Welcome to Porto

Very much a summer resort, and all but deserted in winter, Porto sprawls a long way back from the sea, up the slopes of the valley. All action centres on its picturesque waterfront, punctuated by a pocket-sized red-rock headland that’s topped by an oh-so-cute 16th-century watchtower, built to guard against Barbary pirates. Frequent boat trips set off to explore the shimmering seas of the gulf.
