Although the popularity Lisbon has acquired in the last years as a favorite tourist destination, the city of Porto is still quite underestimated. The so called “second city” in Portugal sets the standards in the country when it comes to design, thanks to its heritage as a manufacturing hub through most of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Today Porto is gradually becoming a shopping mecca, filled with locally made items by emerging designers who can’t be found elsewhere. Even designers from Lisbon are coming to the Porto area to produce because all the industry is situated there.
