Porto city historic city centre is UNESCO World Heritage (1996), and is also a living organism where old and contemporary
architecture co-exist. For instance, the city's main avenue, Aliados Avenue, opened in 1919 by Barry Parker, has been
renovated in 2006 by Álvaro Siza and Souto Moura, (both Pritzker Prizes), taking advantage of the opportunity created by
the implementation of Porto's subway. We will saw the House of the 24, designed by Fernando Távora and built in 2002, on
the foundations of the former House of Representatives of the XV century. We'll see the greatest view of Porto from Gaia,
the opposite city, along the trip in Gaia Rope-way teleferic. The Museum of Contemporary Art of Serralves designed by
Siza and Casa da Música designed by Rem Koolhaas will complete the visit to contemporary Porto.
