Cedofeita is probably Porto’s coolest student neighbourhood at the moment. With the growth of the Art Neighbourhood is no wonder that this is currently one of the trendiest spots in town. Every two months, the galleries inaugurate their new exhibitions on the same Saturday, with a popular street party that attracts many visitors. In Cedofeita you can find both international brands and smaller boutiques, as well as coffee shops and other services. It is close enough to the city centre to be walking distance to the main party spots. This is a popular among students, especially foreign and exchange students looking for a home in the historical part of Porto.
Common among young people, this neighbourhood attracts students and local artists.
Igreja de São Martinho de Cedofeita is the oldest building in the neighbourhood but no one knows when it was build.
Palácio de Cristal Gardens where you can take a lovely walk.
With something always happening, you will never be bored in here.
Porto is a city with character. Studying in Porto is all about living and loving that work-hard, party-hard spirit. From the welcoming weeks (so-called Praxe) to celebrating graduation at the Queima das Fitas, student traditions embrace this.
