Porto is one of the oldest cities in Europe, and registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1996.

It is the second-largest city in Portugal, and one of the major urban areas in Southern Europe and the capital of second major great urban area in Portugal. Its administrative limits include a population of 250,000 inhabitants distributed within 15 civil parishes. The Porto Metropolitan Area includes approximately 1.7 million people. It is recognized as a Gamma- level global city by the Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) Study Group, being one of five cities on the Iberian Peninsula with global city status.

One of Portugal's internationally famous exports, port wine, is named for Porto, since the metropolitan area, and in particular the adegas of Vila Nova de Gaia, were responsible for the production and export of the fortified wine.
