Oporto, (the use of the name Porto is becoming increasingly common in the English-speaking countries) is Portugal's second city in size and importance. It is situated in the north of the country, on the northern bank of the Douro River, just in from the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The country and the Port Wine (Portuguese: Vinho do Porto) owe their names to the city of Oporto.
