* As of April 26th, we have only 5 rooms remaining in our group block.  We will continue to accept reservations, subject to availability at the time of your request.

November 6 - 11, 2018

Porto, also known as Oporto in English, is the second largest city in Portugal and one of the major urban areas in the Iberian Peninsula. Located along the Douro river estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centers, and registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. 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 was responsible for the production and export of the fortified wine.
