The City of Porto
The ROSEDA Conference is held in Porto. The city is characterized by a millennial history and a strong dynamism and personality. The great wealth of its artistic heritage, the Port Wine, the vast spaces dedicated to leisure and its cultural life, are just some of the many reasons you should visit the city. No wonder that in recent years it has been considered to be Europe’s best travel destination.
Along the river and the sea, the city unfolds in charming landscapes, inviting terraces and the pleasure of the outdoors. Keeping its character hospitable and conservative, the city is also contemporary and creative, and all of this testifies to the streets, architecture, museums, leisure spaces, esplanades and shopping areas, from traditional to spaces modern and exclusive.
The Historic Center of Porto has been a World Heritage Site since 1996, and its landscape and its winding streets give it a unique beauty.
