Meeting Porto “Side B” - the Porto behind the frontage
Eco-Social International Tours guided by the project Terramote351
for March of 2015
“Terramote351” – Meeting Porto “Side B”, the real Porto
Meeting Porto “Side B” (International Eco-Social Tours) is a project inside the Terramote351 Project that aims to guide foreigner visitors or inhabitants through the less well known side of Porto, Porto side B. Therefore it´s not a conventional touristic tour. It´s a tour focusing on social, ecological, cultural aspects, in spite of the fact that history is always a very relevant element.
Discovering the past, roaming the present and dreaming the future are proposals contained in this walk by some of the hidden or forgotten treasures from Porto city. Old rural farms, old nobel houses, city gardens, sublime panoramic views… and a lot, lot more. Above all, a Tour that for sure will surprise you at each step.
Terramote351 – Intervention and Eco-Social Tours
Terramote351 is a pioneer project, arising from Porto city, and it exists to develop the principals and values of Eco-Social tourism.
Always with the purpose to aware people to the local realities throughout Eco-Social Tours with historical, cultural and, above all, Eco-social relevance.
The tours work in an informal and familiar way. At the tours people interact and share: Them experiences, knowledge and visions.
They also are discovery and adventure tours, where secrets of the urban and rural spaces are unraveled with all their…plainness.
