Porto is an enigmatic city.

Rich in history and elegantly faded in places, it still hums with the vibrancy of a big city. Shady quarters sit alongside shiny new developments. The city centre is gradually coming back to life after decades of decline.

I loved wandering the empty alleys crowded with history and stories whilst the hectic thoroughfares bustled endlessly. Empty walls are invitations to graffiti artists whilst ancient padlocked doors keep their secrets tightly held.
