Sé neighbourhood is right next to the heart of the city of Porto. The typical neighbourhood is named after the cathedral that constitutes the main landmark of Sé neighbourhood. The area is a colourful intricate group of houses and alleys in the oldest part of the city. The neighbourhood’s proximity to the centre translates into historic spots, commercial spots, cafes, typical restaurants and student hotspots. One of the most famous Fado houses, Casa da Mariquinhas is located in the neighbourhood. For a true experience of Porto and wonderful sights of the city and the river, this is the neighbourhood to live in.
The neighbourhood is mostly occupied by students and old people that have lived here their entire lives. Neighbours chat in the windows while hanging clothes, as tourists walk on the streets.
Sé do Porto is a beautiful cathedral from where you can have a stunning view over the city and the river.
This colourful neighbourhood preserves many of the city's traditions.
Sé has narrow medieval streets where clothes hang to dry in the wires and the children playing outside.
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.
