I am a passionate about Porto, both for its culture and for the History of this fantastic city.
I'm graduated in History in Oporto University.
I describe myself as an open-minded person, always looking for new things and meeting new cultures.
It would be a pleasure to share my knowledge with you, to show you the historical and most secret places of this city, to make you feel the ancestral atmosphere of this city
and capture in a unique way the images of this unique city, in the most spectacular places that I will show you."
