The trendy neighborhood
The favorite neighborhood of many in the city (including us at Guiajando). It mixes traditional architecture with a younger atmosphere and new cafes and restaurants that have expanded the local offer.
Porto is a city full of art and design, emerging artists, young designers and alternative proposals. And this is how Cedofeita, where most of Porto’s Art Galleries are located, could be perfectly defined.
It is the most popular street in the neighborhood. One of the most popular shopping streets in Porto.
Rua de Cedofeita joins traditional commerce with stores of brands known all over Europe. It is quieter and smaller than Rua de Santa Catarina.
It is ideal for a pleasant walk, to buy souvenirs and have a snack in one of its cafes
There is also a recommended craft beer bar called Catraio at number 256.
Art in the Rua de Miguel Bombarda
Rua de Miguel Bombarda offers options ranging from traditional pictorial and sculptural arts, to designer clothing stores – from alternative designers – jewelry, designer and vintage furniture, posters, and even restaurants and hostels centered on the theme of art.
On the first Saturday of each month, simultaneous openings of exhibitions are held in the galleries. At these openings there is usually music, drinks and lots of activities for the public: the street is closed for pedestrians and it’s a kind of a city party.
That’s not to say that all the galleries are on this street. Throughout downtown Porto and Cedofeita you can find much more, such as on Rua do Rosário, which cuts through Miguel Bombarda, or the parallel to it, Rua de Breyner.
In addition to art galleries, in this area of Porto there are many stores selling handmade objects such as clothes or handicrafts, antique book and toy stores and other interesting shops.
