Rialto Building
On the south side of Praça D. João I, you can find the Rialto building. Built in the 1940’s and with 8 stories high, it was the highest building in the country at that time. The Building's project was from Porto's architect, Rogério de Azevedo, a notable professional that has a lot of buildings in the City. In the corner with Sá da Bandeira Street, on the lower floor, there was Café Rialto, a meeting point for artists, and free thinkers. Today it’s a bank branch, but if you peek inside, you can still notice the frescoes from Dórdio Gomes on the wall.
