Facing the big lodges of port wine to which it gave its name across the river Douro, Porto is Portugal´s second largest city and there is a certain feeling of rivalry towards Lisbon. But although its ancient roots have been preserved with pride, a modern and lively commerce makes it a thriving city and its traditional importance as an industrial center does not diminish the charm and character of its old quarters or even of the newer and busy avenues, shopping centers and quiet residential blocks.
The Cathedral area deserves to be explored, with its various monuments, such as the Renaissance church of Santa Clara, and the densely populated quarter of Barredo, which appears not to have changed since medieval times.
The riverside quarter of Ribeira is also delightful, with narrow streets, typical houses and picturesque life-style: it has been recently restored and now includes fashionable restaurants and bars. Equally lively and colourful is the market of Bolhão, where you can buy almost anything, but more elegant shops can be seen nearby, especially the jewelleries and leather goods shops in the Baixa (down-town).
Porto affords many other attractions, monuments and museums, as well as a cultural agenda which has been steadily improving. With a well-known gastronomy and hospitable population, it is also the starting point to explore the river Douro in an unforgettable journey upstream.
About the Project
While the ancient roots of Portugal’s second city have been proudly preserved, it is also modern and lively. Porto’s traditional importance as an industrial center does not mean that it is lacking charm and character.
Some of the city’s small-scale, colorful neighborhoods seem to have not changed since medieval times. But if you look more closely you’ll see that they’ve been recently restored and include many fashionable restaurants and bars. Porto has many attractions, monuments, and museums, as well as outstanding gastronomy and a cultural agenda that is constantly improving. It’s also the starting point for an incredible journey exploring the Douro Valley.
Alegria is a project with 16 exclusive, fully equipped, and furnished duplex apartments in the heart of Portugal’s second city.
The development occupies a rehabilitated 19th-century building in a central location that is well known for its authenticity and charm. It is a 10-minute walk from top boutiques, attractions, restaurants, and the city’s main square.
