Escape the Rules in Porto
No, we won’t tell you to break into private property or get you in trouble. But… Aren’t you tired of doing the same regular things everyday? We’ll tell you what to do in Porto!
Porto is a city full of offers for those who live here and for those who are just visiting. Anyway, if the goal is to escape the confusion of people and the usual places, this post is for you.
1. Watch a movie in an independent movie theater
Cinema da Trindade is an independent cinema with a good selection of movies in its original language with Portuguese subtitles. Now you know this, you can watch movies by European and Latin American authors in peace, since this cinema is not as crowded as the regular ones.
2. Have lunch at a café with cats
Cat lover out there? Then you CAN’T miss this cat cafe which is one of only a few in Europe.
In this cafe cats have their own room and can be visited for free by customers. The best part? All animals can be adopted! If that’s not a possibility for you, food and absorbent sand donations are also (always) welcome.
Clearly because they care about animals, the food served is 100% vegetarian.
Wanna know more? We’ll leave here their Facebook.
