Oporto - Boavista and Shopping Brasilia

Hi people,

Once again I want to share with you some pictures of Oporto. This time around "Rotunda da Boavista" or "Praça Mouzinho de Albuquerque" who was a soldier who fought in Africa.

At the center of the square you can see a tall monument that symbolizes the victory of Portugal to the French during the French Invasions.

In this square you can also find "Casa da Musica", an iconic concert hall designed by Rem Koolhaas. 
You can find more about Casa da Música here 

Since I was there, I decided to visit the first Shopping Centre in Oporto: Shopping Brasília.
This year was it's 40th birthday. Nowadays is not what it used to be, actualy is a bit sad to see what was one of the most famous spots to go shopping turning into a black hole. Let´s have hope one day this space revives again.

See you next time guys.
