Transport

by mikewilmott

Hi,

I am flying into Porto Allegre to visit the furniture fair in Bento Goncalves and was wondering what the transport links are between the two cities. Is there a company who would take a booking to provide the transport, or would it be easier/cheaper to take a taxi.

Thanks

Mike Wilmott

How about bus?

Bus info can be found on the ANTT website:
https://appweb.antt.gov.br/transp/secao_duas_localidades.asp
Choose Rio Grande do Sul state and the two cities.

It appears that the bus company is UNESUL DE TRANSPORTES LTDA.
www.unesul.com.br
136,4km, fare: R$14,59
(but check the schedule on arrival, seems to leave only at 19:15 and 19:30)

Bento Gonçalves is 124 km away from Porto Alegre. It would be easier/cheaper to go by bus. The bus terminal can be reached by the trensurb, the urban train of the city.

Travel Tips for Porto Alegre

No special attention

by cochinjew

It is nice not to be given any special attention becaue you are a foreginer, a tourist. As it happens in portuguese speaking countries, I am not looked upon as an intruder, but as a representative of some or other remote area of the deceased portuguese colonial empire.. after all I do have good credentials... with connections to Malacca, Cochin and Lisboa.
It is also nice to arrive in a country and not feel a complete fool about the language.
The portuguese in brasil with its many admixtures is one of the nicest sounding idioms and very soon your ears picks up the sounds that roll off your tongue so sensually.

Three Kisses: if a person...

by Julie_B

Three Kisses: if a person greets you and kisses you three times, alternating cheeks, don't be alarmed! This is a commom way of meeting people, act naturally. Attention: women kiss on the cheek, men kiss women on the cheek but men don't kiss other men, they shake hands.

Discover the Mercado Publico

by guilhermebr

The city public market is a nice place to buy cheap food and regional products, like as chimarrao herb and other 'gauchos' stuff. You can also find the best fishes and meat.

On the sunset, the restaurants located on the top floor of the market are a good choose to listen live music and taste the Rio Grande do Sul culinary

The Cathedral

by ThiagoRamos

The building we see today was built between 1921 and 1972, replacing the original Igreja Matiz, which construction started in 1779 and was never completely finished.

It´s a beautiful cathedral with fine stained-glass windows and barroque statues on the main altar.

Metropolitan Cathedral

by Alless

You cannot miss to visit what is the main historical and imponnent building of Porto Alegre.The Cathedral project was designed by the Roman architect Giovani Batista Giovenale, who was an attaché at Saint Peter’s Basilica. For the design, the architect looked for inspiration in the Partasso Cathedral. Its architectural style derives from the Renaissance. The gigantic Indians’ heads who serve as a basis for the dome posts symbolize the former inhabitants of the region. The pink granite stones were extracted from a stone-pit in Teresópolis neighborhood.

The first stone was laid on August 7th, 1921, after the old church back had been demolished. The works were presided by the clergyman João Maria Balém, when the archidiaconate was directed by D. João Becker.

The cathedral is 80 m long and 47m wide. Its dome is 73.99 m high, with 18.0 m of diameter. The front towers are 50m high.

Although its construction began in 1921, this cathedral wasn't completed until 1986. Its predominant style is Italian Renaissance, but note the twin bell towers, which were inspired by 17th-century Jesuit missions. The facade's mosaic panels were made in the Vatican ateliers
