Are you visiting Porto this Christmas season? Why not take this chance to do some of your Christmas shopping in the Invicta city?
This year, we suggest that you give as a present, Porto de Tradição. Stroll through the streets of Porto, be dazzled by the Christmas windows of our traditional shops and find everything you need for your dinner, as well as the perfect presents for your family.
Find the best ingredients for your Christmas dinner
Salted cod, dried fruit, spices, cake mixes, Port Wine...
You can buy this and more at the traditional grocery stores in Porto. In the heart of the city centre, between Rua Formosa, Rua Fernandes Tomás and Rua do Bonjardim, you find some of the most iconic and almost century-old grocery stores in Porto.
At A Pérola do Bolhão , Casa Januário, A Favorita do Bolhão, O Pretinho do Japão or at Casa Natal you will be welcomed with the usual kindness of the people of Porto, who will recommend you the best ingredients to make a perfect Christmas dinner for your family.
But a typical Christmas element is missing, chocolates. And, there is no more authentic and tasty place to buy your Christmas chocolates than Confeitaria Arcádia. They are simply divine.
Discover the perfect present for the little ones
It is usual to hear in Porto's houses that Christmas is for children.
The little ones love to get toys and make giant lists to send to the North Pole, to the famous Santa Claus. In Porto, you will find two traditional stores that will help you to play Father Christmas perfectly.
At Rua de Sá da Bandeira, you can visit a century-old establishment in the city, Bazar Paris, or head to Rua de Santa Catarina where you will find the Bazar Mabril. In these two stores, the variety of traditional toys such as dolls, soft toys, music boxes, and many more, is enormous. The hard part will be to choose.
But the most rewarding thing about buying presents for children in these places of Tradição (Tradition) is the opportunity to remember your own childhood. How good is it to be able to share our memories of games with the little ones?
Buy tradition for your family and friends
Your family and friends also deserve a traditional present from Porto. And you will find several offers in the traditional shops of the Invicta city.
Are you looking for the perfect present for that family member that loves jewellery? Visit Marcolino Relojoeiro or Machado Joalheiro and find unique pieces of jewellery and gold articles.
And for that friend who is always keeping up with the latest fashion trends? The best accessories are at Casa Lima.
If you still have no idea what to give this Christmas, a book is a great present. This way, you give your friend a journey through worlds and narratives. Do you like the idea? Then, go to Livraria Académica or Livraria Lello and get lost in an array of books to choose from. Take the opportunity and buy one for yourself too.
