UNESCO - Historic Centre Of Oporto, Portugal

The city of Oporto, built along the hillsides overlooking the mouth of the Douro river, is an outstanding urban landscape with a 2,000-year history. The rich and varied civil architecture of the historic centre expresses the cultural values of succeeding periods - Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, neoclassical and modern.
One of the town's trademarks is the waterfront or Ribeira, where you can see and ride in the traditional rabelo boat - just as I did with my postcrossing friend Martinha, and accidentally she is the one who sent me the 1st postcard some years ago :) I fell in love with the town and its prospects and really REALLY hope to visit again.
