  • The Museu do Vinho do Porto (Port Wine Museum), inaugurated in 2004, is located on the ground floor of the Cais Novo warehouse, an 18th century building built by the Douro family, Pinto da Cunha Saavedra, to serve as a wine depot of the Companhia Geral da Agricultura e Vinhas do Alto Douro. The Museum illustrates the importance that the Port wine trade has had in the development and cultural, architectural and social growth, evoking the memory of the transformations that have taken place, through the history of three united Ports: Porto city, Port Wine and the port of the river Douro. The exhibition area has a museological course that provides different readings for the same set of pieces and covers areas as distinct as the archaeological remains of the commercial Porto, the wrecks in the river Douro mole, the Rabelo boats, the importance of the opening of the Douro line and the appearance of banking in the city.
