Over the centuries it had various rulers, among others the Suevi, the Goths and the Moors. However it was not until the “Age of Discoveries” that Portugal and Porto had an important role in the European affairs. Porto became a major trading port and in the 15th century it was one of the greatest ship building centers in Portugal. In the XVII Century Oporto knows an important growth due to the wine commerce. It was a period of great urban and administrative development. Now is considered the most impressive city in the north and deserved the classification of World Heritage Site by

  • 13. Porto Cathedral, located in the historical centre of the city
  • 14. Porto Cathedral
  • 15. The Porto Cathedral (Sé do Porto), located in the historical centre of the city of Porto, Portugal, is one of the city's oldest monuments and one of the most important Romanesque monuments in Portugal
  • 16. Baroque loggia to the lateral façade The current Cathedral of Porto underwent construction around 1110 under the patronage of Bishop Hugo and was completed in the 13th century, but there is evidence that the city has been a bishopric seat since the Suevi domination in the 5th-6th centuries
  • 17. Around 1333 the Gothic funerary chapel of João Gordo was added. João was a Knight Hospitaller who worked for King Dinis I. Also from the Gothic period is the elegant cloister, built between the 14th and the 15th centuries during the reign of King John I, who married English Princess Philippa of Lancaster in Porto Cathedral in 1387.

  • 22. The cathedral is flanked by two square towers, each supported with two buttresses and crowned with a cupola. The façade lacks decoration and is rather architecturally heterogeneous. It shows a Baroque porch and a beautiful Romanesque rose window under a crenellated arch, giving the impression of a fortified church.
  • 23. The external appearance of the Cathedral was greatly altered during Baroque times. In 1772 a new main portal substituted the old Romanesque original and the tower cupolas were altered. Around 1732 Italian architect Nicolau Nasoni added an elegant Baroque loggia to the lateral façade of the Cathedral.
  • 24. Statue Peres of Vímara D. Vímara Peres, Count of Portugal (820 – 873) was a Galician Christian duke within the Kingdom of Asturias. He was a vassal of the King of Asturias, Alfonso III, and was sent to reconquer and secure from the Moors (Arabs and Berbers who had invaded Visigothic Hispania), in the west coastal fringe of Gallaecia, the area from the Minho River to the Douro River, including the city of Portus Cale.
  • 25. Statue of Vímara Peres, created by Barata Feyo in 1968
  • 26. Statue of Vímara Peres, created by Barata Feyo in 1968 In 868 Count Vímara Peres was named Count of Portugal, after the reconquest of the region north of the Douro river. Later Portuguese historians viewed this event as the earliest milestone in the history of the state of Portugal, although Portugal did not achieve independence until the 12th century.
  • 27. Count Vímara Peres was able to expel the Moors and founded a fortified town under his own name Vimaranis (of Vimar) which later became Guimaranis, present day Guimarães (the Portuguese call it "The Cradle City"). Vímara Peres died in 873 in Guimarães. His son, Lucídio Vimaranes (Lucídio, son of Vímara), took control of the county.
