However, Porto’s cultural life is not just limited to its historic and heritage centre, as the terraces, theatres, craft shops, markets and fairs, cinemas, boat trips and nightlife are a guarantee of fun.
The cuisine of Oporto is very rich and varied; some of the traditional dishes you must try are the tripe a la Oporto , caldo verde (green soup), broa (a corn bread), cod, roast lamb or pao de ló (a sort of sponge cake).
