Best store in town








If you ever come to Porto, please visit this A vida portuguesa, you will not regret it.

It's situated in  the first floor  of a charming old warehouse, the place to go if you want to find and bring home some portuguese goodies.

In the last picture you can see Catarina - a friend and also a brilliant entrepreneur  that decided to dig deep in our national cultural & industrial inheritance and generated a whole new interest in old crafts and long forgotten products.
The portuguese shop was the second to open, if you can make it to Lisbon go pay a visit to the original store!
