Free Walking Tour of Porto Street Art
At 3:30 pm, we'll meet in the central city square of Praça de Carlos Alberto. From here, we'll begin our free walking tour of Porto's street art.
Just a few steps from the meeting point, we'll reach the Steak n Shake Restaurant, where we'll get to admire a colourful tile mural by Joana Vasconcelos. Next, we'll see a spectacular 150-square-metre painting of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.
Our next stop will be a step back in time, admiring the 20th century advertisement posters at the Café Candelabro. Afterwards, we'll head to the avant-garde Trinidade Station, where we'll stop to take in an impressive mural by MrDheo and Hazul Luzah.
Porto's extensive street art is also represented at the Mercado do Bolhão, which we'll visit next before heading to the nearby Chapel of Santa Catalina. This 18th century church is famous for its striking tiles.
We'll continue on our free walking tour to the Via Catarina Shopping Centre, where you're sure to be captivated by the curious figures on its façade and the "Who are you, Porto?" mural. Our tour will then take us to Club Gare, an electronic music club, and to see two of the most impressive paintings on Rua das Flores.
Later, we'll reach Ferreira Borges Market and explore the streets around the Gaia quay, before stopping in front of one of the most iconic pieces of urban art in Porto: the Half Rabbit. Our tour will come to an end here, on the corner of Rua Guilherme Gomes Fernandes, at 6:30 pm.
