The Rua Santa Caterina is the most important shopping street in Oporto. It is a pedestrian street which is closed to traffic.
Along the Rua Caterina you will find the Mercado Bolhao which is a lively market with many shops to delight the market lover.
There are many clothing stores, restaurants and cafes along the street.
One of them is the elegant Majestic Cafe established in 1921. It was a favorite meeting place for artists and writers.For a time it was abandoned when tea rooms fell out of favor but was restored to its former glory and reopened in 1994.
The pastries are excellent and will satisfy anyone's sweet tooth.
Take time out from your sightseeing and shopping to just sit with a cup of tea and a pastry, or, perhaps, a cool drink. Enjoy the surroundings and chill out.

The façade, same as the interior, enlightened the street with its Art Nouveau decoration, designed by architect João Queiroz. It has a great atmosphere and not only a touristic attraction.
