“good for relaxed walk”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Nice pedestrian street packed with shops,cafes and restaurants, ideal for a slow relaxed walk. Importantly: not so steep, which is the case with so many Porto streets.

“Beautiful street with lots of shopping”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

It is the main shopping street of Porto. It's fun to just walk around or to do a little shopping. Also a great mall is located at this street. Don't forget to stop by a little Portwine shop on one of its corners. Kind people with great valua for money Ports.

“Best shopping in Porto”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Be sure to check out this busy shopping street. Before the shopping malls invaded the Porto metro area (and Portugal on the whole), this was the only decent place to do your shopping. It still has a great variety of chain and local stores, and plenty of cafés to rest your legs at. Check out the infamous Café Majestic for a strong coffee or creamy milkshake (batido), or pick out your favorite pastry at Confeitaria Imperial. Analogia is one of my personal favorites for finding high-quality Portuguese-made clothing, as is Bruxelas.
Get there by metro by exiting at Bolhão station! Driving in this part of baixa is crazy!

“Shopping and windowshopping”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a very nice and long street with lot of shops and even one shopping mall, fantastic café Majestic and very few cars to bother you. Looks different to other old parts of Porto and is very enjoyable. A must when you are in Porto.

“If you want to shop ...”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

...this is the place to go. This is an open road mall.
In one of the cross-sections of Rua de Santa Catarina and Rua Fernandes Tomás you can visit the Igreja das Almas (literally translation :the Church of Souls)
