  • Article




Porto City Hall is repairing the tiles, aka azulejos nearby the Praça de Gonçalves Zarco and along the surrounding waterfront. The works are carried out by the municipal company GO Porto, and the main goal is to recover the tile facade of this type of azulejo that is named “Viúva Lamego”, and which are ceramic coated.

The endeavour is an investment of circa 164 thousand euros by the Municipality of Porto and should be concluded within 195 days.

It is worth highlighting that, in 2020, the Praça de Gonçalves Zarco and the Via do Castelo do Queijo underwent renovation works of the metal barriers in the beach surrounding area, namely at the Praia Internacional do Porto.
