BELLEZA EN CADA ESQUINA. OH! Tours nace a principios del año 2020 en la ciudad de Porto, y desde aquí lo entendemos como una empresa basada en buscar, descubrir y compartir con el viajero la belleza de esta ciudad. Y aquí hablamos de toda la belleza de la ciudad: más allá del centro existe un Porto Decó, Brutalista, Moderno y alucinante. En el centro, no sólo de casas de colores vive el viajero: te contamos las historias más desconocidas mientras descubres las calles más estrechas y los rincones más antiguos, mientras –estamos seguras– suspiras ‘¡OH! ¡Porto!’. Lo habrás adivinado bien: nuestro santo patrón es el señor Stendhal.

Tour description

Porto azulejada is a fascinating journey through the brilliance of the tile in the city of Porto . You will discover its origin, its techniques and its history while contemplating hundreds of examples of this material so inherently Portuguese.

Get to know the history of the Portuguese tile in depth , touring the city through the aesthetics of the tiling of its buildings. Beyond São Bento, the tile becomes modernist, neo-Mudejar, enxaquetado or avulso. Artists from all eras fell in love with this material, providing the city with hundreds – thousands! – of examples in which to discover the history of the city and its people.

Me ha encantado. El recorrido fue muy entretenido, visitando lugares icónicos y también otros que no se encuentran en los recorridos típicos. Nuestro guia Adrian fué muy simpático, y además tuvo el detalle de ajustar parte del itinerario según lo que los asistentes ya habíamos visitado antes. Súper recomendable!
