Porto Portugal

Known worldwide for its rich brand of wine, port, which is drunk internationally with high quality cheeses, as well as Europe-wide for the fast-paced attacking play of the local football team (who also go by the name Porto), Porto’s industrial center is a UNESCO World Heritage site, though undoubtedly not one of the prettier ones. The locals are known throughout Portugal as ‘tripe eaters’ - due to meat rationing for the supply of local ships – while the city is widely considered within the country to be a tad crass, with many people from other regions seeing Porto as a different country altogether from the rest of Portugal.
