What you can expect

The Belle Époque was a cosmopolitan culture period in the history of Europe that began in the late nineteenth century (1871) and lasted until the outbreak of World War I in 1914. It covers also the intellectual and artistic climate of the period. It was a time marked by profound cultural transformations which have led to new ways of thinking and living the daily life. And on this private tour, you will discover the mark this era left in the city of Porto.

Join me on this beautiful journey that will show you the essence that is still left from the Belle Époque in Porto. Meet me by the equestrian statue of Dom Pedro IV and enjoy a pleasant walk discovering the traces of this significant era. I'll show you iconic buildings of the belle époque in Porto, and visit local spots emblematic of this time like a train station, unique cafes, theaters, markets and many other.

I am an architect with a background in history.

I love to cook and love to walk through my city while telling all the stories that I know. Modern, antique, urban, I have a very broad perspective over Oporto's rich history.

Can't wait to meet you!"
