When I was in Porto in 2012, it seemed to me that the number of tourists visiting the city increased considerably. I have done a little research and I have seen that in recent years there has been an increase in the number of passengers at the airport and in the port of Porto, the number of hotels and the number of visitors to the city and the North. The English lead this ranking, followed by Germans, Spaniards (who have decreased frequency, despite the proximity) and French. Brazil is the sixth country in terms of hotel rates.

In practice, I noticed a much greater movement in the city, a considerable number of new restaurants, bars and shops. I really enjoyed this new move, I was impressed by the amount of people on the streets, both during the day and at night. Until 2009, when I lived there, the number of options was much lower. I was happy to note this, because the news that arrive in Brazil is always about the crisis and I could see that the Port remains cheerful, full of options and very receptive.

Finally, I say all this to mention here some places previously unknown, which I spent and enjoyed very much, all there by the Low.

From Monday to Thursday, it is open from 12:00 to 00:30. Fridays and Saturdays, from 12 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It is 200 meters from the subway (Aliados), on the corner of Conceicao and Picaria streets.

When I met with the champagne, I was on my way to the Candelabro Cafe , which is right next door and opened when I left Porto - December / 2009. Along with the bubbles of the neighbor, came to give life and informality to this corner of the Invicta - the nice Largo Mompilher. The Chandelier works in a store that has been active since the beginning of the last century. Already sold horse ration. From 1952 onwards it gave way to an antiquary which later became a bookstore with a large storefront and today is a café-bar-bookstore, with many titles in the film and photography area, for consultation or for sale. The owners did very well in keeping all the original features of the property, the floor mosaic, stained glass, some furniture. The relaxing light completes the weather. Good for an afternoon coffee, accompanied by toasted toast, toast or cake. Better yet for a simple little bar or a night beer, talking to friends and listening to good music (this is Tom Waits, Velvet Underground, out there). Low price is another feature, but there are few options if hunger comes.

From Monday to Saturday, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
