A group of my coworkers were going to Porto this weekend so I went along. Here are some photos.
Here is the main square, La Praça da Liberdade.Portugal seems to be enamored of elaborate tilework, which is often in blue. Elisabeth, whose family is from Porto, advised we check out this bookstore, la librarie Lello e Irmão. It was gorgeous inside.We took a walking tour of the older part of town. This is the Rua da Flores.Porto had many baroque and Rococo churches. This is the old cathedral, which was Romanesque. This is the Praça da Ribeira square along the riverfront. A view of the riverfront from the bridge, which was called the Ponte de Dom Luis I. The bridge.
We were wandering around and we came upon a market where the only thing being sold was birds and bird-related accoutrements. Do the Portuguese love their birds? Au revoir~
