I spent ten days in Portugal last June and was like most people amazed by local architecture, food, people and general 'atmosphere'... The only thing that puzzled me was the number of empty buildings/ shops in the cities, especially in Porto. It looked to me like one of those places that present doesn't live up to the past... I know all the stories about Portugal and deep recession but I haven't encounter such scenery in any other country I've visited ... Does anyone have any explanation for this?

The explanation lies on a law that prevented landlords from raising rents for certain contracts, while not being able to evict the tenants or their family members after the original tenants passed away. That meant that buildings in city centres gradually crumbled away, until the law was changed spurring a new era of reconstruction and repopulation of historical city centres. That process is still underway.
