That Boavista Avenue is the largest street in Porto?

It is 5.5 kilometers long, between the Military Hospital and Castelo do Queijo, where it is possible to be aware of the past and the present of the city.
The largest street in Porto only came into existence in the mid nineteenth century, being, at that time, one of the noblest areas of the city. The mansions which were built by the wealthiest families of Porto (including the emigrants who had made their fortunes in Brazil) still exist, but no longer have the residential function which they were originally built for.
Avenida da Boavista is now a place of business and leisure, where offices and shopping buildings co-exist with restaurants, cafes and hotels, in a landscape that reflect influences from various eras.
In the northern part of the avenue stand out the Casa da Música building and the Monument to the Heroes of the Peninsular War, in the center of the Boavista Roundabout. There are miles of shops and services, however, as you head south, the closeness of the sea and the City Park makes you forget the hustle and bustle and welcomes you to moments of leisure.
