After being in the south along the Algarve coast, a little more north of Lisbon, the next logical stop was to visit the city of Porto. Porto Porto, also known as Oporto is the second largest city in Portugal after Lisbon, which I first started my 7-month journey in. The population of Porto and the surrounding area comes in about 2.1 million. It’s also one of the oldest European centers and its historical core has been named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
After my post talking about the first stop of my trip to Lisbon, I mentioned how I decided to head down to Lagos which is in the Algarve coast in Portugal.
As I somewhat mentioned on my About page, I took off in 2016 for an extended vacation that ended up lasting 7 months. The first stop on that trip was Lisbon, Portugal. Here is everything that I did and saw and some places to see/stay along the way.
