Porta Azul occupies a typical house of Porto’s bourgeoisie of the nineteenth century. It stands out for its bare stone walls covered with relief patterned tiles, where the colour and brightness of the sun’s reflection on the glaze of the tiles cheerfully combines with the dark and sombre tone of the granite. This style of house began to be built by the Portuguese returning from Brazil following the country’s independence in 1822, they came prepared to invest their fortunes and to socially assert themselves as part of the bourgeois elite. In the comfortable interior, of intelligent and sober luxury, the highlights are the stuccoed ceilings, the enhanced stained glass, the palatial layout of the house’s divisions and the central staircase illuminated by a magnificent skylight.
