Wine, produced in the Douro valley
in Porto. The production of port wine
Porto began in those days; Portuenses are to this day, colloquially, referred to as tripeiros (English: tripe peoples), referring to this period of history, when higher-quality cuts of meat were shipped from Porto with their sailors, while off-cuts and by-products, such as tripe, were left behind for the citizens of Porto: tripe remains a culturally important dish in modern-day Porto.
The Methuen Treaty established
first English trading post was established
To counter this English dominance, Prime Minis­ter Marquis of Pombal established a Portuguese firm receiving the monopoly of the wines from the Douro valley. He demarcated the region for production of port, to ensure the wine's quality; this was the first attempt to control wine quality and production in Europe. The small winegro­wers revolted against his strict policies.

Known as the city of bridges, Porto built its first permanent bridge, the Ponte das Barcas, in 1806. Three years later, it collapsed under the weight of thousands of fugitives from the French Invasions during the Peninsular War, causing thousands of deaths. It was replaced by the Ponte D. Maria II, popularised under the name Ponte Pênsil and built between 1841–43.
The invasion of the Napoleonic troops in Portugal under Marshal Soult also brought war to the city of Porto. On 29 March 1809, as the population fled from the advancing French troops and tried to cross the river Douro over the Ponte das Barcas (a pontoon bridge), the bridge collapsed under the weight. This event is still remembered by a plate at the Ponte D. Luis I.
The French army was rooted out of Porto by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, when his Anglo-Portuguese Army crossed the Douro river from the Mosteiro da Serra do Pilar (a former convent) in a brilliant daylight coup de main, using wine barges to transport the troops, so outflanking the French Army. On 24 August 1820, a liberal revolution occurred.
UNESCO recognised its historic centre as a World Heritage Site
The annual precipitation is high and concent­rated in the winter months, making Porto one of the wettest major cities of Europe.
As a result, its climate shares many characteris­tics with the coastal south: warm, dry summers and mild, rainy winters.
