So many “O” ‘s.
Whatever the case, Porto or Oporto, this city is beautiful. We’ve arrived in Porto and we are settling in for a month.
The past couple of days we’ve basically been walking around and taking in this city’s beauty. The architecture is strikingly beautiful. You get mesmerized by it’s charm very quickly. We’ve noticed a lot of tile work on buildings, houses & churches! The São Bento railway station which is in the historic centre of the city is full of beautiful tile work inside. The tiles tells a story of Portugal . This place is beautiful and probably many people miss it’s beauty and detail because they are in a hurry to get somewhere quickly with suitcases in hand.
Here below are just a few photos we have pulled together. It’s a glimpse of this city’s beauty and it’s people. And of us of course!😊
We heard this week that our home province was hit with a major snow storm. 😩 Here below we’ve photographed this park which was taken on that very same day!
The plastic attached to the laundry is for??? We have been seeing this being done quite a bit .Stayed tuned we’ll let you know.
Below is a beautiful scenic view of the historical centre of Porto and its Ribeira waterfront area (which is along the Douro river) . This photo was taken during our walk across the Dom Luis bridge.
A nice wine bar on the Ribeira. Why not do a sampling! Bacchus Vini wine bar.

A Sunday stroll on the Rua des Flores.
Having fun in the Almeda Square (below).
Must be the daily “Tim Horton” political discussion! (see below).
It’s time to taste some of that delicious Portugal wine! Vinho please! This quaint little wine & tapas place was recommended to us by friends, “All in Porto” on R. Arquitecto Nicolau Nasoni 17. Here we enjoyed an amazing bottle of red Dom Bella 2014. With this wine we discovered a new “cépage” called Touriga Nacional. Nice way to end this amazing day.
“Can’t get any better then this! 🍷❤️ Thank-you!”
Tomorrow a visit to the Douro wine region. Can’t wait!
