Pedrouços is a neighbourhood in Maia. This is a calm residential area that has recently been through a re-qualification project. New life was given to the public spaces, which included a project to improve the main avenue and the maintenance of the luminous fountain, a landmark of the neighbourhood. There were made improvements to the access and so new building started being constructed, and new business started opening. The area has several commercial spots, cafes and restaurants, guaranteeing you will find all you need for your daily life. On Sundays, the local market has many stalls with fresh fruit and fish (usually with better prices than the supermarkets)
The neighbours are people working in the Porto centre or in the Maia area.
Torreão de Pedrouços is a big abandoned tower.
The neighbourhood is very close to Instituto Superior de Contabilidade e Administração do Porto.
This is a calm residential neighbourhood.
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.
Eat the best sandwich in the world - the Francesinha - try the famous local Port wine, and enjoy the student spots such as Ribeira and Piolho with your friends, or just meeting new people.
If you’re going to study here, we have apartments in Porto for Erasmus and other international students.
