Reasons to Invest in Porto

The "Unvanquished City" of Porto is the second biggest Portuguese city and for those who visit it, this title makes perfect sense.
City of contrasts, Porto is cosmopolitan and natural; restless and calm; centre of arts and commerce. In this city, leisure, sport and culture join hands on the banks of Douro River, bringing in these connections an ageless wisdom and a tradition that does not fade away. One can feel it in the locals' accent and hospitality, both northern and very typical of the Lusitanian spirit.

In recent years, for all these reasons and many others, the city of Porto has become increasingly appealing to both domestic and foreign investors. This interest has been expressed since 2015 with a clear growth in the performance of the real estate market.
Although the city alone can justify the high investment interest, we think it pertinent to take you on a short trip to the wonders of Invicta so that you can get to know the top 4 reasons to invest in the city of Porto.

1. A city with history
The city of Porto is a paradise for all who love the daily encounter with history, culture and tradition. Being an inherently historical tourist city, the Unvanquished City owns an irrefutable heritage, which includes such symbolic landmarks as the Tower of the Clergy, the Cathedral and the Stock Exchange Palace.

2. A green city
Those looking for greenery will be delighted in the way a cosmopolitan city like Porto has managed to maintain its telluric charm.Places like Jardim do Passeio Alegre and Jardim de São Lázaro as well as a stroll along Douro will calm the most restless souls and allow you to take a deep breath in the well-deserved green areas of the city.

3. A city of flavours
Fans of traditional gastronomy will also find a good reason to invest in Porto. From Tripas to Moda do Porto, Francesinha, cod, or the rich soups, there are many flavours to sample.To these we should add the velvety Porto wine that's produced locally and a visit to the wineries' cellars is a must.

4. A people's city
Lusitanian hospitality is a purely simple expression that can only be expected from the people of northern Portugal. Porto is no exception!By investing in Porto, you are accepting the challenge of living among sympathetic and hospitable people who know the art of well-being, where ancestral traditions still exist and smiles that never fade away.
