WareCome with us and visit the industrial and resourceful side of the city in some hidden areas of the town. You can see old Customs Houses, warehouses, markets and even specialized workshops, which have slowly been forgotten.
During this journey you will realize that words like initiative and resourcefulness are very important for this town, because due to these qualities Porto turned into what we know today. This development and the changes will be explained by an expert in the topic.
In this period of Porto’s history, some Brazilian businessman, their descendants and some Portuguese, who also lived in Brazil, played a very important role. Men and women, who once lived in Brazil, brought to Portugal innovation and luxury from the New World, a heritage that can still be found in the culture of the city.
We will also admire undeniable traces of the impact of the English, French and German Communities in Porto, which can be seen in some of the most exclusive and private societies of this town.
