Oporto's Downtown


Downtown Oporto

The Oporto Downtown, lined with streets almost entirely dedicated to commerce, it is an authentic open-air shopping center.

The center of all this excitement is Rua de Santa Catarina, every day invaded by a sea of people, looking for something to buy or just for sightseeing. It is downtown that you can also find the oldest and most typical cafes and pastries of Oporto. Also here are the old bookstores and the small bookstores who live healthily with the large and modern bookstores.

With the day almost over and the trade closed the animation moves to the nearby theaters and concert halls such as the Rivoli Theatre, the Coliseu do Porto, the Teatro Nacional de São João or the Batalha (Theatres).
