Students, students, and more students. Paranhos is the place to be if you want to be near your colleagues. Despite being full of students, it's still a calm place.
Paranhos is the centre stage for Porto's entrepreneurial events. Home to UPTEC and the Porto Design Factory, there are all sorts of events and training sessions for you to attend.
When in Paranhos, you must drop into UPTEC. Here, you can meet some of the most inspiring startups in Portugal in action. Meet new and creative people, and beat them at table tennis.
