Da Praia Street, Porto Alegre

(3.2/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
With wonderfully preserved red, black, and white granite mosaics along the pavement, you must literally watch where you walk as you stroll down the oldest street in Porto Alegre. Officially called Rua dos Andradas, Da Praia Street is how you will hear locals refer to it, a throwback to when the street ran directly parallel to the shore of Lago Guaíba. As the heart of the city, the street has a lively atmosphere and it is always bustling with people and has numerous cafés, restaurants, and shops including the famous Livraria do Globo. It is also home to several significant attractions, among which you will find Casa de Cultura Mario Quintana, one of the largest cultural centers in Brazil, and Igreja Nossa Senhora das Dores, the oldest church still standing in Porto Alegre. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Porto Alegre holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Da Praia Street and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Rua da Praia is located in the historic centre of Porto Alegre. It is possible to see various historic buildings, there are varied trade and many cultural options to visit. It's a good walk in Porto Alegre.

  • in our city this street is known as the street of the Beach due to flooding that happened in the city in 1941, but the correct name is rua dos andradas.
