Fun Facts About Porto

Let’s dig into some of the things that make Porto special. 

  1. Did you know that port wine gets its name from Porto. Amazing fortified red wines can be found in the area, especially by the Duoro Valley. So when we say that Porto goes down like a fine wine, we mean it!
  2. It might be small, but don’t mess with Porto! The city’s nickname, “Invicta,” means “Invincible.” Porto earned this moniker after enduring a 19th century civil war when the city held out from a siege that lasted over a year.
  3. The home of FC Porto, Estádio do Dragão, is in Porto. The soccer club is #1 in Portugal and one of the most successful clubs in all of Europe. If you don’t believe us, check out the trophy wall: 23 Super Cups, 18 Portugal Cups, 30 Primeira Liga trophies, 2 UEFA Europa League championships, 2 Club World Cups, 2 UEFA Champions League trophies, 1 European Super Cup, and 4 Championship of Portugal trophies.
