Portugal World Heritage Sites

The country’s extremely rich monumental, artistic and archaeological heritage reflects the different encounters in time and space that have given Portuguese culture its unique characteristics in world terms. In Portugal, amongst its historic centres, archaeological sites, monuments, cultural landscapes and natural landscapes, there are thirteen locations  classified by UNESCO as World Heritage sites.

Northern Portugal

Porto, a riverside city with a soul of granite and some most solemn silhouettes, is a lively place with many different attributes. Classified as a World Heritage site, it is an old and authentic city, offering some extraordinary panoramic views and a rare mixture of architectural styles that make you feel as though you’re travelling in time. When visiting the city’s Romanesque cathedral, stop for a while and breathe in the Middle Ages as you admire the great mass of houses making their way down to the banks of the River Douro.
