A Water Visit to Porto

We traveled along the Douro river.  The trip ended in Porto, and we have a few posts with pictures from Porto.  Porto is a grand decaying old city.  The water front along the Douro river is spectacular, and there are other buildings of interest. Some pictures are from the boat, some are from our walk in the city.  

Another cruise boat on the Douro, and the city as backdrop. 

The waterfront, and the houses along the water.  Note the tarps, umbrellas, wash, and satellite dishes hanging off the homes.
