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.

José's place was the best choice ever for our 3-day trip to Porto.
First of all, before coming to José's beautiful house, we contacted him via sms to agree on our arrival time. This was very convenient, because we had no internet access for 7 days before coming to Porto. When we came to the house, we were really warmly welcomed by José and his two cute and calm dogs. The house turned out to be 2x as nice as on the pictures. It was very spacious and with modern and intriguing decor in each single room. Truly beautiful design. It was also absolutely clean. One can at once recognise that the owner has a natural artistic flair for design. Secondly, we got not only a very cosy room, but almost "private floor" with own bathroom. Above all we got from José a map full of insider tips, which absolutely made our stay in Porto remarkably interesting. On our departure day, we got to know two José's sisters, who helped us by calling the taxi for us to the bus station.
Regarding the house: it is perfectly located within walking distance of the old town in a calm street, so we didn't need to take a bus.
To sum up: this was a perfect stay and I would recommend every person this kind of accomodation.
My sister and I really enjoyed our stay in Porto, and particularly our stay in Zemanel and Marta's home. This was our very first experience with airbnb. The instructions on arriving from the airport were clear and easy to follow. Marta greeted us and showed us around. The bedroom, bathroom, and wifi worked well for us. We had use of the kitchen, but mostly we spent our time out and about. The home was within easy walking distance of everything - Porto is a very interesting and beautiful place. We were really thankful to Marta because she helped us to book a cruise on the Douro river - made the call, arranged the tickets, and booked a taxi. It was wonderful of her to do this, as this cruise was the highlight of our visit in Porto. Thank you Marta and Zemanel.
His house was nice modern and artistic in the lovely old street. They are very kind people, Zémanuel, his girlfriend, and two dogs : Frida et Mizou! We regretted à little that we couldn't spend more time in his house and talk with them, because we ware in the city rather then in the house for the sightseeing in those shorts days.
Anyway, we had a good week end in Porto. ...and plus, Mizou let me touching finally!
