The Bolhão Market is a famous market in the city of Oporto. It is a two-level complex with a neoclassic architecture built in 1914. It has four different areas divided by products: fish, butcher, garden and flowers. In its surroundings there are many other shops, such as clothes stores, coffee houses and perfume shops among many others. Its name is due to a rivulet that crossed through the area, and formed a water bubble in the place where the market is today, naming it “Bulhão”, that means a big bubble.

If you visit Oporto you should not miss this traditional Market
