Town Council
Helder:The current building of the Porto City Council, in Portugal, was designed by Architect Correia da Silva and began to be built in 1920. The project followed the expansion plan of the civic center prepared by the English architect Barry Parker, approved in 1916. The realization of this plan led to the expansion north of Liberty Square, opening the Avenue of the Allies and the current General Humberto Delgado Square. Although it was started in 1920, the works of the building of the town halls suffered numerous interruptions, and changes were made to the initial project by Arq. Carlos Ramos. City council services only settled in the new building in 1957

He entered the service provisionally on November 8, 1896 and was not officially opened until October 5, 1916. Located in the historic center of Porto, the station has established itself as one of the main monuments in the city, being especially famous for its tile panels. Covering an area of about 551 square meters, they represent mainly scenes taken in the north of the country, with portraying, among other things, the Valdevez Arches Tournament (Battle of Valdevez Arches panel), the presentation of Egas Moniz with the children to King Alfonso VII of Leon and Castile in the 12th Century, the entry of D. João I and D. Filipa de Lencastre in Porto (panel Entry of João I in Porto), in 1387, the Conquest of Ceuta, in 1415 , and traditional country life (Panels Views and Rural Scenes);
Image - Porto Cathedral
Porto Cathedral
Helder:The beginning of its construction dates from the first half of the twelfth century, and lasted until the early thirteenth century. This first Romanesque building has undergone many changes over the centuries. From the Romanesque era date the general character of the facade with the towers and the beautiful rosette, as well as the body of the three-nave church covered by cannon vault. The vault of the central nave is supported by arches, and the Sé do Porto is one of the first Portuguese buildings in which this architectural element was used. In the Gothic era, around the year 1333, was built the funeral chapel of João Gordo, knight of the Order of Hospitalers and collaborator of D. Dinis, buried in a tomb with water. Also from the Gothic era dates the cloister (14th-15th century), built in the reign of D. João I. This king married D. Filipa de Lencastre in the See of Porto in 1387. The exterior of the Cathedral was greatly modified in the baroque era.

Port Wine - Everything You Need to Know
Helder:Portugal has been producing wine for thousands of years and this asset quickly became an important export since the twelfth century. Despite the remains of stone treading tanks and casks dating back to the third and fourth century that have been found throughout the region, records show that the Port Wine brand, or designation, appeared only during the late half of the seventeenth century, which coincided with the fast growth of Douro Region viticulture and wine exports. A curious fact is that Port Wine export growth is, in part, due to a time of great rivalry between the maritime empires in the North, when the Flemish and the British, in the detriment of wines from France, increased their demand for Iberian wines, late in the seventeenth century. England, in particular, significantly increased its quantity of Port Wine imports, trading it in exchange for Codfish.

Helder:The Stock Exchange Palace was built on the ruins of the Franciscan convent that was destroyed in a fire.

Porto Bridge Climb
Helder:In 1963, the Arrabida Bridge was the largest concrete arch in the world. Since 2016, this arch has become the only one in Europe open to visitors. It is a unique opportunity to gain access to a place that has been closed to the public for 53 years (despite some clandestine visits ...). In the company of a guide and with all the safety equipment, even those with vertigo can climb to one of Porto's most iconic buildings. At the top, 65 meters above the river, a peaceful and relaxing place where we enjoy unique views ... and a delightful surprise! Finally, the descent of the 262 steps reveals the size and elegance of this national monument. From 12 years old, in groups of 1 to 13 people.
