Photographer's Note

It was tempting to make this picture with this beautiful panorama ... I admit it is unimaginative but why not share the cliché ?

Porto (Portuguese: Porto, pronounced [poɾtu]) is a city in Portugal 237 559 inhabitants and about 1.8 million in the Greater Porto (2011 figures), making it the second largest city in the country after Lisbon. Both cities have often competed in the past. She is known for port wine, its monuments and bridges over the Douro. Porto, by its history of the wine trade with the UK, seems to have been influenced by this country and an important commercial activity. An adage evokes the character of the different Portuguese cities: 'While Lisbon is beautiful, Coimbra studies, Braga prays and Porto worked.
