Da Praia Street, Porto Alegre

3.1
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. Put Da Praia Street and other Porto Alegre attractions into our Porto Alegre trip planning site , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • While circulating by rua dos Andradas, we regret to have to compare with other streets of larger towns or of the port of Porto Alegre. She has no material conditions, is abandoned by the Government-that just makes and misses and enforcement initiative of merchants and professionals who use it and need it.
