This Porto free walking tour could not miss the some of the city’s most emblematic spots like the Café A Brasileira, the Sá da Bandeira theater and the Rivoli theater before arriving at the commercial district of Santa Catarina.

Just in front of the market stands one of Porto’s oldest stores, the Pérola do Bolhão. The story of its founder is the story of every Tripeiro and the pulse and energy of Porto. Wandering around Santa Catarina's district our Porto free tour could not miss the ecstatic Capela das Alma or the renowned Café Majestic, Porto’s finest example of Art Nouveau architecture and the biggest rival to the Clérigos church, the church of Santo Ildefonso with its 11.000 panel of blue tiles that remember the São Bento train station by no accident, the author Jorge Colaço is the same. Get ready to be completely astonished by the most charismatic district of Porto, "the island" as it is called here, the singular Bairro Herculano.
