Your Ultimate Guide to Camellias in Porto

written by Gabriella Opaz | 20th January 2017

In the North of Portugal, parks radiate green under rain filled winter skies. Moss gently spreads along ancient stone walls, vines creep up porcelain tiles as Camellia trees burst in red, pinks and whites. It’s mesmerizing, beautiful and absolutely worth seeing for yourself! Camellias, however, didn’t originate in Portugal, like the cork oak or lavender bush did; they’re home to eastern and...

4 Must Eat Sandwiches of Porto!

written by Ryan Opaz | 6th June 2016
