A place with historical value, elegance and comfort, resulting from the rehabilitation of the centennial railway warehouse of Vila Real station. Place of history and modernity, from the atmosphere to the menu, the tradition of the local flavours is preserved and integrated into a creative cuisine, fused together into a wonderful experience.

Porto is the third destination in the annual “World's Best Places to Visit. Ranking 2017” published by U.S. News Today. The only Portuguese city on the list comes after Rome and Sydney. Behind it are Paris, London, Machu Picchu, the Grand Canyon, Phuket and more places you can not miss.

I received an invitation from Turismo do Porto! An invitation to visit the Quinta de Santa Cristina in Celorico de Basto. The reason?

Quinta de Santa Cristina was honored with the Best Of Wine Tourism award in the category Innovative Wine Tourism Experiences by the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.

I was curious and decided to accept. And that's what I did best!

The city of Porto soared 11 places up in the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) ranking and now is one of most sought-after destination for business events, namely, conferences, congresses and meetings.

The Douro Museum – a Territory Museum is the perfect gateway to discover the Douro Demarcated Region, declared a World Heritage by UNESCO as a evolving and living cultural landscape. In a multisensory approach, it creates connections throughout its territory reaching communities and projecting Douro's heritage well beyond its borders. Its creativeness and networking earned it the regional distinction of Best of Wine Tourism 2017 in the Art and Culture category.
