Doors in the area of Rua das Flores

We discovered the charm of this 18th Century walking street sloping down from Porto’s San Bento Railway Station to the Duoro river. Known as “Rua das Flores,” or “Flower Street,” it earned its name from the beautiful gardens that used to line the houses along the way. Sadly, those gardens are now gone.

Love the tile work on this one and the window design.

I believe these are apartment doors.

The white doors of these apartments make the place seem clean.

At the very bottom of Rua das Flores, you’ll see the nice frontage of Farmacia Moreno, a pharmacy that was built in 1804. The owners have kept the front just like it was in the 1900s.

    The featured Farmacia storefront is amazing. I’m glad the owners have chosen to maintain the appearance as it was. The other door that seems charming is the green door on the lower right of the second photo. I love the tiles, too.

      The character of this door is awesome.

  3. Charming indeed and as I love blue and balconies, I really like these. I especially enjoyed the different windows in the first shot, the ones just above the shop. They have a wonderful shape and quirky look.
