Apparently one of the most visited monuments in the north of Portugal. It’s quite impressive, particularly its moorish revival Arab room. A must see.

This splendid neoclassical monument (built from 1842 to 1910) honours Porto’s past and present money merchants. Just past the entrance is the glass-domed Pátio das Nações (Hall of Nations), where the exchange once operated. But this pales in comparison with rooms deeper inside; to visit these, join…

Soccer Stadium
“The Dragão Stadium is the home of the Porto Football Club. It was designed by architect Manuel Salgado and opened in 2003. The opportunity to replace the old Antas Stadium came up when Portugal hosted Euro 2004. The Dragão stadium hosted the UEFA European Championship opening match between the national teams of Portugal and Greece. The Dragão has a capacity for approximately 50,000 spectators and is home of the FC Porto Museum by BMG, a wide and technological space which shows the history of the club founded in 1893. In recent years, FC Porto won the UEFA Cup 2002/03, the Champions League of 2003/04, the 2004 Intercontinental Cup and the Europa League in 2010/11 in addition to several national titles.”

Point of Interest
“2019: the building is currently going under massive refurbishment which I cannot wait to see the result as a Porto inhabitant but also as an Architect. So far the time being, you can still enjoy the very fresh food producers stand in the relocated Mercado do Bolhão a little further away. Open on a daily basis and always fresh!”
