Tipps von Einheimischen
The imposing Avenida dos Aliados is the heart of the city, a sloping boulevard lined with grand buildings and a central promenade. The city hall sits at the top of the Avenue.
The heart of Porto, it is where everything happens. Live concerts, the music coming from Rua das Flores, people coming from everywhere, the sight of the Clerigos Tower and São Bento train station... Porto's life goes through here!
One of the most beautiful streets in Porto, quite central to everything else. A must.

“This owes its planning to the visionary spirit of the Almadas whose restoration work brought a new brightness to the city of Porto in the second half of the 18th Century. The road was extended as far as Alameda da Aguardente, today's Praça Marquês de Pombal. Its imposing façades house some fine examples of the Art Nouveau style. Over 1500 metres long, the Rua de Santa Catarina, part of which has been pedestrianised, is the busiest shopping street in the city centre with clothing stores, haberdashery, shoe shops, the Via Catarina shopping mall and countless street vendors, less or more legal and carts selling handicrafts and jewelry.”

“The Tower, Museum and Church Clérigos are a must-see in the city. After climbing 225 steps to reach the top of the tower, you will be astonished by the view of the city (a 360° perspective).”

“You can't visit Porto without visit Bolhão. This market is where farmers and people from here came to sell their fruit and vegetables. Unfortunately it's closed for renovations. But you can visit the temporary one at La Vie.”

“Rua da Flores is certainly one of the most touristic streets in the city of Porto. It wasn’t always like this. This street, that crosses São Bento Station and São Domingos Square, was the old street of merchants and aristocrats. Crossing Rua das Flores is not always an easy task, given the amount of people entering and leaving the shops, grocery stores, and cafes, on the terraces. Until today, the street has maintained its original profile and architecture of the XVII, XVIII e XIX centuries, and this is where one of the most emblematic baroque façades of Porto can be seen, the Misericordia Church (1749-1750), rebuilt by the architect Nicolau Nasoni.”
