What you can expect

Porto shows proudly the works & masterpieces of its local & most famous architect, Álvaro Siza Vieira. This Portuguese architect & winner of the Pritzker Prize in 1992, has left his mark in the city and I can show them to you!

Being a local architect myself & a fan of Siza's work, I know all the best spots where we can admire & discuss his most famous creations. I'll take you to see a number of his works including the Museu de Serralves (Contemporary Art Museum), and the Faculdade de Arquitectura do Porto (Architecture Faculty), which is also one of the best architecture schools in Europe.

You will also discover how Siza has touched even some of the oldest & known spots in the city. Did you know that this local architect completely transformed Avenida dos Aliados, the city's main square? His influence is present throughout the city!

Along the way, I'll also point out to other architectural gems like the Sao Bento station. Porto is full of beautiful buildings and they are all worth a look! Any another architectural gem in mind? Or want to know more about Siza? Let me know and I'll create a unique itinerary for you!

I am motivated individual born in Porto, Portugal! I am also a Landscape architect, passionated by arts and culture and now a full time host and tour guide! I've lived in Italy for 2 years, Berlin for 1 year, and most recently Macau for 7 months. I am very relaxed, sociable, open minded, love to travel and meeting new people.
My ideas for life is to travel, start my own arch studio one day and then travel again :)"
