DESCRIPTION – Porto Alegre: Historical heritage
Porto Alegre presents a great ethnic mix and it can be said that it is an open air museum, especially with regard to the city center. It was founded by the Portuguese, but it welcomed immigrants from all over the world, especially Germans and Italians, but also Spaniards, Africans, Poles and Lebanese – influences that can be observed not only in cultural habits but also in their architecture.
Accompanied by a guide, you can visit the historical center and various heritage works, such as Santander Cultural, the Casa de Cultura Mario Quintana and the Teatro São Pedro. We will comment on IPHAN restoration projects and tipping, among others. It is also possible to expand the tour to the Serra Gaúcha, just 120km from the capital of Rio Grande do Sul. In addition to the natural beauty, you’ll enjoy the amazing architecture.
Discover this guided tour with Artchitectours by a professional architect who will join us throughout the itinerary. This city tour is a bit longer than usually because it lasts 8 hours but you will discover the historical center and various heritage works.
