Da Praia Street, Porto Alegre

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.

  • This street was very good walking but today is full of holes and filled with stalls on the street selling all you imagine pirate products and stolen produtis, God night free to walk on this street.
