Since today is National Historic Center day 2014, we decided to celebrate in a special way and dig through the archives for images of when we went up and gazed at our town. We are always skeptical of such institutional celebrations, as we can’t help but feel that nowadays the State does more damage than good to our historical urban and architectural fabric. But we love a good celebration nonetheless!

So here is Porto in all its grimy glory, countless architectural style juxtapositions, roof lanterns and British Palladian pediments, slate siding and marseille roof tiles, little factories buried deep in the back and great long balconies in the front.
