Bout the Rabelo boats
These are one of the most popular symbols of Porto. The flat bottom boats, used to be the nautical horses that carried barrels of Porto wine from the Douro valley vineyards to the Port Wine cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. For centuries, when there were no suitable roads or a single railway alongside the vineyards, Rabelo boats were the most efficient and reliable means of transportation.
