Probably, the house is a building from the XVII century.
Reonstructed a few years ago.
The house is located in one of the oldest streets of the city with 1,5km.

The city of Porto has its origins as a city dating from 417.
The Bonjardim street is cited in the thirteenth century and linked the city to the edge of the old Largo da Aguardente (now the Marques of Pombal). It was a medieval track that went to the north of Portugal.

Currently there are still some relics of the ancient city, near the Marques found the Fountain Vila Parda (1859), across the Paraíso street.
The Musas street, crossing the Bonjardim street, already existed in 1777. It was an area densely populated working class in the nineteenth century by the existing factories in the Alto da Fontinha.
Following down the street you can still see the house where he lived the painter Arthur Loureiro, 1843.
Arriving at the junction with Gonçalo Cristovão Street we are faced with the building of Newspapers - Jornals de noticias and Tito Fontes Square.
Sources Tito Fontes square ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) was a physician, politician and a great promoter of tree planting in the city.
Appears below the junction with Alferes Malheiro street which gives access to the Trindade station. The old station where steam trains stopped in the early '70s. Currently the metro station.
After appear the old grocery stores, some still with the look of whilom, such as the Feira do Bacalhau (1925) and Pretinho do Japão.
Across the street at the corner of Fernandes Tomás street, is the Casa Lourenço, where you can buy good cheese, and smoked pork.
Passing the junction with Fernandes Tomás street, appears Santos & Irmãos, former home of frames.
then will appear the Liceiras alley of which it is mentioned in the will of Bishop D.Vicente Mendes in 1296.
Following the street to the Formosa Street, the corner grocery is famous Casa Januário (1926). In this block there is an ancient trade varied, from hardware, keys, house of skins, etc..
When the road intersects with Square D. João I find Coffee Garça Real and Rivoli Theater (1913).
Across the street, the last block of the street to the right and the building is in ruins Cervejaria Stadium.
Area of several restaurants where the is famous Regaleira restaurant where it was invented Francesinha, an ex-libris of cooking Porto since the '60s, invented by a former migrant worker in France.
Another house not to be missed is the Rei dos Queijos, another place where tradition reigns.
Opened in 1933, is now a small cafe / bakery that continues to have the Serra cheese own brand, made from sheep's milk Bordaleira, as the great exponent. Then there are little treats like cakes and beans or Tentúgal cheesecakes.
Further down a bit, the street ends, which is actually the beginning. Here was the Porta de Carros, where he began the road to exit the city to the north of Portugal.
