17 October 2010 - PT - 144553 - Porto

It has been almost an half year ago that I received my last card from Portugal . I was happy when I found this card in my mailbox, which shows us the Cathedral of Porto. It has traveld a distance of 1,563 km in 11 days.

The city of Oporto, built along the hillsides overlooking the mouth of the Douro river, is an outstanding urban landscape with a 2,000-year history. Its continuous growth, linked to the sea (the Romans gave it the name Portus, or port), can be seen in the many and varied monuments, from the cathedral with its Romanesque choir, to the neoclassical Stock Exchange and the typically Portuguese Manueline-style Church of Santa Clara.
