This is the most typical picture in Porto that I fall in love immediately when seeing #porto  #oporto  #portugal 
His Most Faithful Majesty Dom Pedro IV, King of Portugal became known as "the Liberator" in Brazil for his role in the country's independence. The Liberal Wars were fought between 1828 and 1834 between the armies of the two brothers and pretenders to the throne, D. Miguel who aspired to govern as an absolute king, and D. Pedro IV who adhered to the liberal and constitutional ideals. The Absolutists besieged Pedro’s troops in Porto for 13 agonizing months (July 1832 to August 1833), during which the city endured famine, the plague and constant bombings, in what is named in History the Close-Siege of Porto. Porto folk converted to D. Pedro’s liberal cause and fought bravely along his troops. They never surrendered nor let the city be taken – from that period comes the naming of Porto as “Invincible” and the dragon upon its traditional coat of arms (and not only there…) as a sign of bravery.
As he was leaving Porto to carry on his victorious campaign against the absolutists, D. Pedro proclaimed himself grateful to the city and said: “I must go, but my heart will always be in Porto”.💙 #portugaligers #porto#portolovers#portugal #ilovearchitecture #bairroalto #ilovemyfollowers #iloveportugal #wishyouwerehere #beautifuldestinations #sun #portugal_lovers #portuguese #ff #141 #architecture #likeforlike #ladolcevita #lifestyle#sunset #saobento#eastertime#easter#exlore#ilovetotravel#discover#graffiti#streetart#palm#nature
