Huge place! Spent 2 hours, could spend 3-4hours easy! Lots of interesting stuff to see and do. Only thing is, if you don't know how to speak Portuguese, you won't get the full experience. Only few things was translated to English. Seems pretty weird.

Theatro Sao Pedro

Reviewed By Parolo-E - Porto Alegre, RS

Founded in 1858, artists as Rubinstein and Villa-Lobos have performed here, and still today it is a place for high Music and Drama. It's a jewel neoclassic building, with its interior ornamented with delicate art representing native birds and flora.
There you can attend from classical music (it has its own chamber orchestra) to pop music, and drama.

Reviewed By LekaB_Iolovitch

In a great location, close to Guaiba river where is possible to appreciate a beautiful sunset, Beira Rio is the Stadium where big events like shows and the World Cup took place. Have a nice architecture and it's close to city's downtown and other attractions like Fundação Iberê Camargo museum.

Arena do Gremio

Reviewed By rw2018

We enjoyed an interesting tour in the Gremio stadium: we learned a lot about it's design, construction and daily use. We saw the soccer field, but also the VIP-rooms, offices and other facilities normally not open to the public. The guided tour was professionally and well organized. Nice Gremio shopping opportunity afterwards, Interesting to learn about the direct link between Gremio stadium and Amsterdam Arena stadium.

Instituto Ling

Reviewed By cbonorino - Porto Alegre

This is a beautiful place, fantastic architecture, lovely Gardens, and a welcome surprise for the cultural life of Porto Alegre. Courses on gastronomy, but also in different cultural aspects such as literature, art, music, sociology, among others, make this place not only a must for tourists but also for locals. There is a Press CAe inside with options fur lunch, dinner and happy hour, but my favorite is the Special Presspucino.

Padre Chagas

Reviewed By Calovius - Porto Alegre, RS

The Pde Chagas street is, presently, probably the most traditional shopping street in the "Moinhos de Vento" neighborhood. With good shops, restaurants and facilites, you can do everything on foot here. Car driving and parking are impossible things on this street. It is the place for people to show themselves, it is undoubtedly a beautiful place, but today it is a very targeted area for robberies.

Lake Guaiba receives the water of Jacui River, Cai River, Sinos River and Gravatai River.

Reviewed By Alyfff

Take a boat trip from the port. You can buy the tickest there or by the internet. There are two routes ar least. But choose one at a time near the sunset time and southbound. You´ll never forget the experience. There are options to party and dine on board as well. Enjoy the views of the city, of the dwelings by the lake banks, of the nature. And don´t forget the sunblock on sunny days if you´re not going to watch the sunset.

Igreja Nossa Senhora Das Dores

Daily 8.30am-7.30pm

Reviewed By ajaceman - Vancouver

There's no doubt that this church has them all beat as far as sheer size is concerned. Maybe that's why it took 97 years to complete. While not as ritzy as some other churches in terms of being plastered with friezes and gold plated ornamentation, it is nevertheless jaw dropping impressive.
