Street art is everywhere in Porto and taking a street art tour of the city is a great way to see it all. From the Trindade mural to the Painel de Azulejos Ribeira Negra, you’ll find it all! But if you want to get the full experience, you must take a few extra hours to explore it all.

Trindade mural

The Trindade mural is a striking and iconic piece of street art in Porto. It covers the side of a parking garage near the Trindade metro station, and was commissioned by the city’s local government in 2014. The work was a collaboration between the artists Hazul and Mr. Dheo, and combines the styles of both artists. Hazul’s contribution includes bold geometric shapes, and Mr. Dheo’s is more naturalistic.

Perspentico mural

If you’re a fan of street art, you might be interested in taking a tour of the Perspentico murals in Porto. These huge works of street art are created by local artists. You’ll find them at Rua de Afonso Martins Alho, between Rua das Flores and Rua Mouzinho da Silveira. There is a small café here, so you can enjoy a coffee while taking in the art.

Painel de Azulejos Ribeira Negra

Painel de Azulejos is a 54-metre-long work of street art that was painted in Porto in 1978. The artist behind this work is Julio Resende. Ribeira Negra is a district of Porto located in the city center. It is known for its street art, and you can find several examples in the Rua da Ribeira Negra area, including abstract patterns and painted electricity boxes.

Mira or Look by Daniel Eima

The Portuguese street artist Daniel Eima created a stunning mural in Rua Nova da Alfandega in Miragaia Porto, called ‘Mira or Look by Daniel Eima.’ The mural shows a very simple life in Porto. The artist has also incorporated his art into solo exhibitions and street art festivals.

Rota do Cha

If you’re looking for an authentic tea experience, you’ll want to stop by Rota do Cha. It’s the only tea shop in Portugal, and it sells teas from the only tea plantation in Europe. The cafe is a hip, boho space with colorful booth seating and a large, shaded back garden. The garden features a large, crossed-legged Buddha, and birds chirp in the trees.
