Mercado Porto Belo, designer market

Praça de Carlos Alberto

King Carlos Alberto of Sardinia lived there when he came to Porto in exile in 1849. The square was given its present name in his honour. In the middle of the square is a memorial to the Portuguese people who died during the First World War.

 

On this site you will also find a beautiful church covered with azulejos and on Saturdays, a small flea market takes place and antique dealers, designers, come and sell their goods.

 

Go there on Saturday afternoon and walk on in the Miguel Bombarda street to discover the many trendy shops.
