Away from the medieval Porto urban centre, defined by the Fernandina Wall, the area of the current parish of Cedofeita, hosted the church of São Martinho, whose foundation is thought to date back to the sixth century. The opening of Rua de Cedofeita only happened in 1762, as part of a vast urban renewal plan put into place by João de Almada and Melo, through the public works board.
The new plan aimed to relate the riverside port area with the city's high, through "regularisation and creation of drainage axes, as well as their transverse articulation". Among the most important roads was the so-called "Rua da Estrada", today Rua de Cedofeita. The urbanisation of the street was rapid. Although not yet completed at the end of the 18th century, the so-called Balck Round Plan, published in London in 1813, shows the street to its present extent - between Carlos Alberto Square and Boavista Street - and with abundant implantation on both sides of the buildings.
This building is located between Miguel Bombarda and Cedofeita, in the centre of several points of interest that can be visited on foot, as described:
- Church of Cedofeita: 200 metres
- Metro Lapa Station: 300 metres
- Faculty of Law of the University of Porto: 500 metres
- Republica Square/Military Headquarters: 500 metres
- Commercial Area/Services Good Success: 550 metres
- Luz Hospital: 600 metres
- Military Hospital: 600 metres
- Mouzinho de Albuquerque Square (Boavista roundabout): 800 metres
- Carlos Alberto Square/“Movida”: 800 metres
- House of Music: 850 metres
- City Hall/Aliados Avenue: 1,300 metres
Cedofeita street is also near Miguel Bombarda that is, without a doubt, one of the trendiest and eclectic streets in all of Porto.
These units are great investment opportunities for both long and short term rental.
