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.
Almost all house and garden

We were very content with our choice. Our host was very kind, generous and mindful, he even had prepared a little plan with insider-tipps, which was very helpful. The neighbourhood was calm and nice and the room, bathroom etc. was comfortable. We would love to come again.
We were met by Jose Manuel's sister who made us most welcome. And provided very good instructions and orientation for the house and Porto. Jose Manuel's excellent map that he had made was a great help.
The house was in a great location, close to the Metro and in the old part of Porto.
It is a beautiful old stone building with a modern interior.
Jose Manuel's and Marta were excellent hosts who spent time talking about their city, country and lives.
We really enjoyed our time there.
Merci à José Manuel ! Superbe maison style loft et son jardin à deux stations de métro du centre, super accueil, José Manuel donne plein de bons plans et une petite carte maison pour faire découvrir Porto.
Je recommande ! Patricia
Nous avons passé un très beau séjour dans la maison de Zemanel, qui a pris le temps à notre arrivée de nous conseiller quelques endroits pour manger et boire un verre. Durant le séjour, lui et Marta ont été des hôtes parfaits, disponibles et chaleureux. Concernant le logement, la chambre et propre et lumineuse, avec tout le nécessaire ; les deux chiennes sont calmes et affectueuses. La maison est à env 10 min à pied du centre ville, sans compter qu'il y a le métro pour les pieds fatigués! Nous recommandons donc vivement cet endroit à tous les voyageurs désireux de découvrir porto!
We had a very beautiful stay in the house of Zemanel, who took upon our arrival time torecommend us some places to eat and have a drink. During the stay, he and Marta were perfect, available and warm hosts. Concerning the housing, the room was clean and bright, with all the necessity; both dogs are quiet and affectionate. The house is at env 10 min on foot of the city center, and there is the subway for the tired feet! We deeply recommend this place in all the travelers avid to discover Porto!
José was a really nice guy! I gave us so many tips to go in Porto and the room was very beautiful. José his house is near the city centre, so it was a really nice walk to the centre and near his house there were many bakeries etc! Thank you José for the nice stay!
Very nice host and very nice house! Zemanel gave us a plan of the city with some special places to go have a drink or eat. We specifically recommend Victoria and Maus habito! :)
We had a great time at jose's house. Jose is ontzettend aardig en gastvrij. Hij heeft zijn huis zelf opgeknapt en heeft dat met veel stijl en gevoel voor schoonheid gedaan.
Het huis ligt aan een lange straat die helemaal doorloopt naar het centrum, maar is ook per metro gemakkelijk te bereiken.
Thanks for your hospitality Jose!!
