Welcome to WikiProject Porto!


  • To include & update Porto related content on the English Wikipedia
  • To facilitate & encourage translation of existing Portuguese articles from regional wikis
  • To attract Portuense editors to the English WP and work together on articles and copyediting


To do[edit]

  • Keep the Porto Metro articles up to date, as the lines are opening and expanding rapidly. Also create articles for notable stations, with at least a photo and something useful to say as minimum criteria for creation. (Example: Trindade (station))
  • Create / translate / expand articles on Porto parishes and places. (Example: Paranhos, Porto)
  • Create / translate / expand entries for surrounding towns. Again, with photos and / or something interesting to say. Portuguese pages to be translated can be found here and here for starters. (Example: Rebordosa)
  • Monitor existing Porto pages for accuracy and standard of English.
  • Add photographs to existing pages.
  • media link on english page is pointing to parades .. should be Paredes. 20141225

Project news[edit]

*I've proposed that Grande Área Metropolitana do Porto be moved to Greater Porto, please check the article talk page and give your opinion. Page moved.

  • List of Porto metro stations has been redirected to the main Porto Metro article, as it contained no separate information and there is no point in maintaining two lists, especially given the pace of change in the metro at the moment.

Hi! This is not parishes in the sense we use in Portugal, these are "freguesias". Porto has many more parishes. I don't know for sure, but I think they are 28.For ex. Ramalde has the parishe of Ramalde proper and N. Sra. da Boavista, Cedofeita has Cedofeita and Carvalhido, Campanhã has Campanhã and S. Pedro de Azevedo and so on.
