The extensive waterfront of Guaíba is one of the great attractions of Porto Alegre. In addition to the revered landscape with the spectacular sunset, the waterfront is a bustling place for leisure and sports activities, facilitated by the spaces and infrastructure installed, such as the revitalized part in the Parque da Orla Moacyr Scliar, the Parque do Pontal, the Parque Marinha do Brasil, the Public Dock of the Usina do Gasômetro, the Iberê Camargo Foundation and the nautical clubs.


The building of 1869 has more than one hundred stalls of national and imported spices, regional, religious and artisanal products, among other options.

Restaurants (some centenarians), cafes, snack bars and curious fairs, such as vinyl records and comics, make up the scenario.

The square, itself a postcard of the city, houses in its surroundings cultural spaces such as Santander Cultural, the Rio Grande do Sul Art Museum and the RS Memorial. Once you’re there, follow Rua dos Andradas towards Casa de Cultura Mário Quintana and Igreja das Dores (the oldest church in POA), with its monumental staircase.


Also known as Praça da Matriz or Praça dos Três Poderes, is surrounded by the Legislative Assembly of RS, Piratini Palace (seat of the state government), Metropolitan Cathedral and the São Pedro Theater, inaugurated in 1858. Leaving Praça Mal. Deodoro, follow Duque de Caxias street, where you will come across a beautiful view of the region from the Otávio Rocha Viaduct.


Built on the site of the former Matriz Church, in the highest part of the Historic Center, the Metropolitan Cathedral had its construction started in 1921. Designed by the Italian architect João Batista Giovenale, the imposing architecture of the cathedral, with a dome of classical Roman inspiration, stands out in the landscape as a religious symbol.


The Casa de Cultura Mario Quintana (CCMQ) is a space totally focused on cinema, music, visual arts, dance, theater, literature and holding workshops and events related to culture. The building, where the Majestic Hotel used to be, was built between 1916 and 1933 and later listed as a historical heritage site. The visitation is free every day, from 10h to 20h, with possibility of mediation. More information
