I am going to Oporto as part of a cruise and will only be there for one day. Can anybody recommend a good place to eat and some interesting things to see and do?

"Oporto is in Portugal, not Spain:)"

"Here are some major attractions in Porto or 'Oporto' 1- 12th century cathedral or se. Huge cathedral founded in the 12th century but extensively altered in the 18th. Open from 9am to 12:30 and 2:30 to 7. 2- Igreja de Sao Francisco - Gothic church with a plain facade but tons of gold-leaf gilding inside. There is also a museum and catacombs below, which we found more fascinating than many guidebooks did. 3- Ponte de D. Luis, the city's emblematic iron bridge, built by a disciple of the famous Eiffel. 4- Don't miss the Ribeira do Porto, the cluster of buildings, smoky bars and seafood restaurants along the waterfront. For some good restaurants: Porto is a spectacular city, and a great place to eat. Imagine ordering a bottle of Dao wine, Portugal's celebrated red, in a little churrasqueira (barbeque chicken joint) and watching as the waitress carefully wipes the cobwebs off of a bottle of 1995 before serving it. Now guess the price of this wine. If you guessed less than 5 Euros, you are correct. The whole chicken meal with all the trimmings for two and an aged vintage wine came to 12.90 Euros, quite a bargain. But click the second link below if you'd like to read a review of a great restaurant in the Taylor Port Cellars."

MENTION Oporto, and one tends to think of well-fed British gents puffing postprandial cigars as they sip garnet-colored wine and solve the world's problems before rejoining the ladies in the drawing room. But what that word — the name of Portugal's second-largest city — ought to conjure is an almost impossibly picturesque town of Gothic, Renaissanc
