Superbly finished studio apartment with underground parking in the iconic Aliados of Porto. Here you are steps away from the famous Sao Bento Station, Livraria Lello which is synonymous with being the inspiration for the Harry Potter Books, Clerigos Tower and many other central historical landmarks.
This building of great historical value, it was designed by renowned architects Rogério de Azevedo and Baltazar de Castro. It was built in 1930 as the headquarters of the old O Comércio do Porto newspaper.
A gorgeous building combining the influences of Art Deco and Expressionism, it is marked by vertical pillars spanning the building’s entire facade and eight grandiose female figures overlooking the avenue. The circular entryway greets visitors in a hall decorated with marble and imposing ironwork doors. Inside there is a magnificently coloured stained glass window, encircled in iron that meets your eyes with delight and pleasure.
As you leave the elevator on the rooftop, a stone turret which, much like a lighthouse, creates an imposing presence over the entire avenue and accentuates the building’s majestic appearance.
