今日は、ワインで有名なポルトの旧市街を紹介します。

 

Ponte D. Luis

Our bus ran while we were glancing sideways at many bridges that span Rio Douro.

Finally, the bus approached the bridge that was indispensable to scenery of Porto.

It was none of cloud in the sky, the form was gradually appearing, and my heart beat faster.

 

About Porto

Porto is a commerce city, an industry city, and is the second city of Portugal.

This place was a port town (Porutus) before Christ, and the name of Portugal originates in it.

In the 11th century, a French aristocrat who played an active part in Reconquista was given the whole of Rio Douro watershed

At this time, seedling of grape was brought.

In the 12th century, they gained this side of Lisbon neighborhood, went independent from Islam power and the neighboring country, and Portuguese kingdom was born.

At this time, Coimbra became capital city, and Porto had become main harbor city.

The southern coast of Rio Douro that is lined with many wineries prospered in the Roman era.

 

ドウロ川に架かる幾つもの橋を横目にしてバスは走る。

いよいよバスがポルトの景観に欠かせない橋に近づいて来た。

空には雲一つ無く、徐々にその姿を現してくる、私の胸は躍る。

 

ポルトについて

ポルトはポルトガル第2位の商工業都市です。

ここは紀元前からの港町(ポルトゥス)で、国名ポルトガルはこれに由来する。

11世紀、レコンキスタで活躍したフランス貴族にドウロ川一帯を与えられた。

この時、ブドウの苗が持ち込まれた。

12世紀、彼らはリスボン近くまでを掌中に納め、イスラム勢力と隣国から独立し、ポルトガル王国が誕生した。

この時、コインブラが首都になり、ポルトは主要港湾都市になっていた。

ローマ時代は、現在のワインナリーが並ぶドウロ川南岸が栄えていた。

It is a view from a winery side.

The right side is in the upper reaches, the east side, and we can see Ponte D. Luis. 

When we go a distance of about 4 km to the left side, I reach the Atlantic.

The ship that carries wine barrels is moored.

The opposite bank is Cais da Ribeira that was lined with restaurants and shops.

It was the port for the open sea route once.

We visit here with long walking at night.

 

This place is a winery of Sandeman.

I sampled two kinds of wine, and after all it were delicious.

 

ワイン樽を運ぶ船が係留されている。

対岸はカイス・ダ・リベイラで、レストランや店が並ぶ。

かつては外洋航路の港だった。

私達は夜の町歩きでここを訪れます。

 

ここはサンデマンのワイナリーです。

2種類のワインを試飲したが、やはり美味でした。

< 7. カテドラルと眺望 >

 

This cathedral was built in the Romanesque style in the 12-13th century, and after that, extension and alteration were accomplished by the Gothic style.

It is the oldest building in this city.

Upper two photos: The appearance of the cathedral.

Lower two photos: Views from the open space of the cathedral.

The upper photo is a view of the north side, and the spire in the left side is Igreja e Torre dos Clerigos (church).

The lower photo is a view of Rio Douro.

 

カテドラルは12~13世紀、ロマネスク様式で建てられ、後にゴシック様式による増改築がなされた。

これは市内で最も古い建物。

The rose window on the gate of the front is beautiful.

All things are beautifully, and as I am staying in the chapel that reflects dim light, my heart becomes pure.

 

On the next time, I introduce the walking of Porto at night.

 

正面の門の上にあるバラ窓が美しい。

すべてが美しく、微かな光りを受けて浮かび上がる堂内に居ると、清廉な気持ちになっていく。

 

次回は、ポルトの町歩きと夜を紹介します。
