Located along the Douro river estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centres, and registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. Its settlement dates back several centuries, when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire.
One of Portugal's internationally famous exports, port wine, is named for Porto, since the metropolitan area and in particular the adegas of Vila Nova de Gaia, were responsible for the production and export of the fortified wine.
Golf: This 6-hole course is located across the river from Porto which it makes it very convenient for golfers to play during the week and have fun practising their strokes on the short holes. It is also a very inviting course on which to start the process of learning how to play the game of golf.
