The City of Porto
The City of Porto has one of the richest artistic, cultural and historical heritage in Portugal, as shown by the several monuments and museums all over the city. This was officially recognised by UNESCO, which considered Porto (its historical part) as "World Heritage". But Porto is a city where its history can be found in a small street or in a dialogue with its inhabitants - a new adventure starts here.
Porto is also famous by the Porto Wine, coming from the schistose lands of the High Douro, and brought to age in Vila Nova de Gaia, in the semi-darkness of the cellars, in oak casks or in bottles.
City Patron Celebrations (June 24th)
If you are travelling the weekend before the conference starts, you will have the chance to witness and participate in the St. John's Celebration.
Porto's St. John is a big, bellyful celebration and has to be understood as a great manifestation of the masses, one that is eminently joyful, popular and lasting all night, with a whole city outdoors, in a happy and fraternal collective social intercourse (read more).
