Ribeira, viewpoint of convento da Serra do Pilar em Vila Nova de Gaia

The most recognizable and charming panoramic view of Porto is that seen from Vila Nova de Gaia, from any of the several cellars and terraces. It is on this side of the Douro that one gets the best view of the city, with all its beauties uncovered. It is precisely in the viewpoint of the convent of the Serra do Pilar, at a considerable height, that the landscape is dominated by the splendid iron bridge, the D. Luis I bridge, symbol of the city and the old city of Porto, with its cathedral and Tower of Clerics cut out the sky.
The Ribeira is one of the oldest and typical places of the city of Porto, Portugal.
Next to the Douro River, it is part of the Historic Center of Porto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is, at the moment, an area very frequented by tourists and place of concentration of bars and restaurants

Rabelo boats and Dom Luis I bridge in Douro river, Porto

Dom Luis I bridge and rabelo boats from Vila Nova de Gaia.
The Dom Lui?oei?oes I Bridge is a double-decked metal arch bridge that spans the Douro River between the cities of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia in Portugal. It was opened in 1886 and is one of the landmarks of the city. At the time of construction its span of 172 m was the longest of its type in the world.
The Rabelo boat is a traditional Portuguese cargo boat that for centuries was used to transport people and goods along the Douro River.
Native from the Douro region, it does not exist in any other place of the world. Its history is closely linked to the production and trade of port wine. Before the arrival of the railway, the rabelo was the fastest and the most efficient means of transport between the Douro Valley, where port wine is produced, and the city of Porto, where it was traded and exported worldwide.
Although not in use anymore, still today the Douro River holds these vessels, belonging to port wine companies, in the cities of Porto and Gaia.
Porto, also known as Oporto in English, is the second-largest city in Portugal, after Lisbon, and one of the major urban areas in Southwestern Europe. Located along the Douro river estuary in Northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centres, and its historical core was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. The western part of its urban area extends to the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. Its settlement dates back many centuries, when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. One of Portugal's internationally famous exports, port wine, is named for Porto, since the metropolitan area, and in particular the caves of Vila Nova de Gaia, were responsible for the packaging, transport and export of the fortified wine. In 2014, Porto was elected The Best European Destination by the Best European Destinations Agency
