A restaurant that turns into a bar with a guest house above. The space surprises for the duality of feelings that comes from the semi-industrial design reflected in the cold gray walls badly painted, large areas with panels and ceilings with exposed beams, contrasting with the warm comfort light, retro furniture carefully chosen to give a refined look, books that invite you to learn, tables that resemble the homes of our grandparents inviting conversations with ideas. A site with a bohemian personality, marked by intimacy, creativity and modernity.

It’s more than a coffee place in the usual sense of the word but rather a bar and a restaurant wishing to be an option for any time of the day. With a modern decor, this space turns for itself the staying so very pleasant, in a casual and cozy atmosphere that strives for good taste. It is a restaurant with several options throughout the day, providing a cheap option for lunch in the entrance dining room or a more sophisticated dinner on the second floor.

Excellent bike ride! you just have to go from Castelo do Queijo to Afurada, first along the beach and then along the river until you’ll reach the 2nd bridge on the Douro River (D. Luis bridge – another of Porto’s icons) and crossing it to visit the Porto Cellars on Cais de Gaia, it’s the views of Porto and the bustling Ribeira waterfront that are the most spectacular feature. Wander along the riverbank that goes all the way to Afurada - a fishing village where you can eat good fish. My favourite restaurant is Taberna de S. Pedro. To go back you can simply take the boat to the shore of Porto.

(in English Garden of Virtues) - is a beautiful vertical garden over the Douro, which goes unnoticed to many of the Porto inhabitants. Located at the back of the Palacio da Justiça, this hidden garden is known by few and is one of the hidden charms of the city Invicta (that’s the cognomen for Porto). One of the peculiarities of this garden that distinguishes itself from others is the fact that it is vertical, it grows in steep levels.
