Yep. Port wine!

FUN FACT: For Harry Potter fanatics like me, Porto also served as major inspiration for the magical novels. Author, J.K. Rowling moved to Porto shortly after her mother’s death in the early 1990’s to work as an English teacher. It is here that she brought the still-growing manuscript for Harry Potter and wrote part of the first book. There is even a famous bookshop in Porto that inspired the library at Hogwarts.

For Harry Potter fans, wine lovers (and everyone in between) Porto is a beautiful city that shouldn’t be missed!
