Today, the city is a richly varied organism, the quintessential domain of mobility. Inspired on travel and the coming together of people, Casa do Conto, a charming home with its own cultural agenda, promotes the intersection of people and ideas on an urban stage.
Renewed now, after 100 years of history in Oporto, the elegance of Casa do Conto is accentuated to welcome guests in an iconic cultural atmosphere. This is a project which could only have taken place within a city, a territory which drives interpersonal contact and stimulates creativity. The Casa do Conto project brings new significance to the XIX century bourgeois home in Rua da Boavista, one of the main arteries of Oporto.
The renovation project for the house, which is listed as being of special historical interest, has accentuated both its architectural and poetical value. The significance which these buildings can take at the renewed city, as a symbol for those who inhabit it, even if only temporarily, confers modernity to Historic Centres, and can help prevent their desertification.
