“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.”

“ Typical portuguese grand mother’s cooking! They don’t speak English, trust their recommendations and go with the flow. They also do not take reservations, get there early (12h for lunch and 19h30 for dinner. If you find people waiting at the door, don’t worry, usually it takes a max of 10min to get you sorte!”

Nightclub

“The fanciest club in town. The music won't be so comercial, people need to dress up quite nicely. The kind of place where you'll find famous people. You may need to wait a lot in the queue. It is close to the center, but not that close and it is isolated from other venues. You need to take an uber.”
