  • Article


The good weather that was felt in the city throughout the weekend, especially on Saturday, allowed thousands of people to enjoy multiple activities included in the official programme for the National Day of Historic Centres (DNCH). A few days ahead of the official date (today, March 28 th , that celebrates the initiative), Baixa was literally taken by the people from Porto and tourists, to discover stories (and much more), unknown to many.

Are there places that you’ve always wanted to visit, but have never had the opportunity to? For many, that opportunity happened on Saturday, with many places open to visit and explore, and even activities intended for people of all ages. There were almost 50 activities, promoted by more than 20 entities, under the coordination of the Municipal Department of Culture of Porto City Hall.

A day filled animation through the city, with guided tours, exhibitions, workshops, music, theatre, dance, and other activities. Largo de S. Domingos and Amor de Perdição, Praça da Ribeira, Port Wine Museum, medieval pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Clérigos’s and Carmo’s churches, the Rectorate and Museum of Natural History, Cooperativa Árvore, Terreiro da Sé, Palácio das Artes, Miradouro da Vitória were a few of the places that received all of those who wanted to discover and get to know the historic centre of Porto even better.
