Passeio dos Clérigos
Passeio dos Clérigos’ was an exhilarating market before its closure in the 90s. Two years ago it was revamped into a promenade which links Livraria Lello – one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world – to Clerigos Tower. Passeio dos Clérigos is now a place for shopping and eating. On one side you have Clerigos restaurant, a versatile food court with sushi, bread, ice creams, pizzas, tapas or fine dining. And the opposite corridor houses fashion brands such as Hugo Boss, Pinko, Hoss Intropia and Paez.

This block breathes art and design because of the dozens of galleries, fashion labels and illustration shops. Be warned: here you can lose your head – and your money. Explore the different streets, suhc as Rua do Rosário where you’ll find Japanese shop Kuri Kuri; Fine&Candy, an exquisite craft notebook brand and Muuda, a melting pot for Porto’s young fashion talents. Rua Miguel Bombarda has a little mall where shops are constantly shifting to bring diversity into the area. There you’ll stumble across a bonsai sellers, vintage clothes stores and a DIY tea shop.
Ribeira is the most touristy area in the city with a memorable riverside view and a long promenade where locals often walk. Be careful where you choose to buy your stuff. We recommend Hats & C.A.T.S, where you’ll find handcrafted hats from all over the country; La Paz, a cool menswear store and Take Away Porto, which sells Portuguese canned food, wine, olive oil and lots of well designed Porto merchandise – the perfect place for souvenirs. There is also a new market called Mercado Ferreira Borges which, unlike the others in the city, is dedicated to concerts, nightlife and weekend exhibitions.
