In recent years Portugal has become a hotspot for culture and investment. Everyone’s talking about Lisbon, but few people know much about Portugal’s second city: Porto. Many people pick Porto as their Portuguese city of choice, and as house prices rise in Lisbon, it is becoming increasingly more attractive to buy property in Porto.
