We want to share with you everything we know about Porto's artistic scene! - Sometimes we will both go in the tour with you, sometimes just one of us! We will explore some of Porto's alternative places within the oldest neighborhoods in search of great street art pieces in the most unlikely places. We'll show you the best street art works in town and some interesting buildings, leave you a suggestion for cool galleries and museums you can visit afterwards and we will stop for a break in one of my favorite cafés, where we can sit down for an expresso. Before we part ways, we'll also give you a special gift, so you can bring a nice memory of the experience and of your trip to Porto home with you! Porto has many layers of time. Through the city's historical buildings and modern architecture, Porto's contemporary urban culture and street art have flourished in a very peculiar way. Join us on this street art experience to explore this contrast between the old and the new, where you can see how the modern shaped Porto's artistic atmosphere. We hope I can share this passion of ours for the Arts and Culture with you!
João & Afonso
Hello we are Miguel and Afonso! Two very passionate persons about Porto and all the good things this city has to offer! I'm (Miguel) doing a PhD on Portuguese contemporary history and I'm an arts enthusiast - especially urban art, which flourished in Porto in recent years. And I'm (Afonso) I am a northern Portuguese man who is rather keen in the arts of all manner of shapes and kinds. I want to share what I know about the art scene in Porto with you: the museums that are most worth visiting, alternative art galleries, street artworks, contemporary architecture, cool bookshops, and so on, so forth! So we invite you to see the street art throughout Porto, a very diverse and bustling scene in size, thematic and aesthetic. And while we’re here, I'll also tell you about the rich history of Porto and point you some nice places to eat!
Let's have an expresso in one of my favorite places in town!
