** 800 PICTURES ** ... never thought to get here :-)

Douro river with Porto in the right bank (left for you looking into the picture :-) and the sister town Vila Nova de Gaia on the left bank
The higher building is the XVI century "Serra do Pilar Monastery" (actually Porto Artillery regiment). From the church's terrace, the future Duke of Wellington planned his surprise attack on the French in 1809.
