Clichés have the hard life! I believed Porto was conservative and religious, and I discovered a bright and free city.
At noon I have an appointment with my lover at the foot of the bridge Luis I. Going down the small streets of the neighborhood San Nicolau, I came face to face with the Douro. Huge, majestic, the river sparkles everywhere. How not to fall in love with the first sight?
