    Great place to view the amazing art deco architecture and have a coffee on the top for a nice view. This used to be a hotel and now converted into a cultural centre.

    Parque Farrouilha or Redencao is in the heart of Porto Alegre. It has a lot of good stuff. Farmers´market saturday morning, Arts and Crafts Fair saturday and Sundays afternoon, lots of walking/running areas, playgrounds for kids, and mini parks inside the park including a dog play area.

    Especially on weekends the park gets quite full and people are enjoying with their families and friends a stroll, artists, artisans or simply doing their weekend jogging run. For children they even have a small library which unfortunately righty now still is closed.

    The Beira-Rio stadium is located in a privileged area of the city, close to a beautiful green park and with stunning views to the Guaíba lake.

    Great and amazing football arena and great tour guide Juliana. Enjoy a tour of this amazing stadium and get the feeling of this football temple. Unfortunately, the team isn't playing so well this season, but they have this great and amazing place with a lot of history you can enjoy during the tour. Take advantage and take a photo with the "Copa de Libertadores", the south american soccer trophy.

    This centenary building harbours one of the best theatres in Brazil. It was finely restored over more than twenty years to reopen to its former glory two decades ago. It has now been joined by a modern cultural complex, the ao called Multipalco. Check for attravtions. Concerts, shows, ballet and plays are often happening here. Visit the theatre even if there is nothing going on. Guided visits can be arranged and a nice cafe serves you with a nice view of the adjoining squarr.

    The Public Market is a good place to buy artisanal cheeses, salami, and other typical foods.
    In addition to food and drinks, there is a very interesting handicrafts and antiques fair.

    This is a nice shady garden with paths, benches, and ponds. There were several photography sessions going on the day we went, otherwise not many people around.

    Better than being inside the Cathedral is actually to look at it from outside where to see apart from its imposing size (a pretty-solid built one I would say with brown stones or such) are these "colorful drawings" featuring some religious scenes right on the front face of the Cathedral (which in my opinion are nice enhancements of "beauty & vibrancy" to the Cathedral that you can kind of feel right upon entrance to it & and yes which is a "unique feature" among many cathedrals I've been to where the art scenes are inside & not outside). But yes, as inviting as the Cathedral is outside, the "kind of letdown" feeling for me was when I got inside hoping to see ornate & glittering shrines that I had become used to seeing at the cathedrals of the Spanish South America (the "main cathedrals" comparable to this one in cities such as Lima, Cusco, Santiago, Buenos Aires & Montevideo), only to find none of those at this cathedral except for some statues of saints & such and where also the main altar is a "pretty plain" one.

    Located on the south side of the "not too big" square (called Praca Marechal Deodoro or Praca da Matriz), also to see just in the vicinity of this cathedral are Palacio Piratini, Palacio Farroupilha & Theatro Sao Pedro (grand "heritage styles" of Piratini & Sao Pedro and somewhat modern style of Farroupilha) although all three appeared to be closed which I'm not sure was due to "being weekend" when I was here; and also right about in the middle of the square is a monument with some statues around it (likely for some "centenary celebration" from 1739 to 1839 or such which may be some significant period in the history of the city). A bit of an inconvenience getting to this square though is its terrain of being on a somewhat higher elevation (especially coming from the south side like I did), and the square is also partly wooded (which I would say you may want to be a bit careful of).

    And yes, along with this cathedral, very much worth visiting is the one that locals call the White Church due to its "big white facade" (really quite impressive to look at from the front grounds or the street out front) with also a "fair amount" of gold glitters to see inside (just about a 15-minute walk from this cathedral with a left turn after coming out for a 5-to-10-minute walk followed by a right turn downhill for about 5 more minutes).

    The street with so many places to eat & drink. This street also turns into a party place on weekend nights. The walk in this street was always a nice change from hotel room.

    I live not far from PoA but have never walked the Orla. It was a good walk, brisk. The area is clean, great view of the river. There were several restaurants. The walkway took you a bit out into the river, not far, but off the coast. It's a safe area with boats as well. Fun and free!
