Apartment

by elainebrustolin

Hello Everyone,

I am coming to Porto Alegre for 10 days on February 15, 2007 until February 25, 2007, with a group of 6 people, including 2 children. I would like to rent an apartment or find a hotel where we could all stay together.
A 3 bedroom, fully furnished apartment would be ideal. The location is very important too.
If anyone could help me, I would truly appreciate.

Thank you

Travel Tips for Porto Alegre

The so-called historical and...

by ctv881



The so-called historical and cultural centers of Praça da Alfândega and Praça da Matriz and Mário Quintana Cultural Center - formerly Hotel Majestic - cannot be missed.

In the surroundings of Praça da Alfândega (Senador Florêncio) one can find the Post Office Building, the Museum of Art of Rio Grande do Sul (MARGS), the Trade Center, the former Banco Nacional do Comércio (now Banco Meridional) and the former movie-theater Guarani, now Banco Safra. The Praça da Matriz or Marechal Deodoro is bounded by the Metropolitan Cathedral, Palácio Piratini (seat of the State Government), the Legislative Assembly building, Theatro São Pedro and big old houses like Solar dos Câmara, transformed into a cultural hall, and Museu Júlio de Castilhos, which is open every Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

From the promenade at Gasômetro, downtown, one can witness the communion between the city and Lake Guaíba. Besides visiting a former hydroelectric power plant transformed now into an important cultural center, the boat Noiva do Caí welcomes tourists aboard on a tour of the lake with its scattered isles. Another boat, the Cisne Branco (White Swan), leaves from the docks' central gate. A delicious lunch (Brazilian-style) is served on board.

Tourism Office Information

When the afternoon is about to end, the Café Concerto, on the top floor of Mário Quintana Cultural Center, is the perfect place to watch the sun go down to the sound of excellent live music;

The legendary Gaúcho churrasco;and

The visit to Caracol Park, close to Gramado (90 miles far away from Porto Alegre), where you can practice trekking and contemplate an spectacular waterfall.

by Julie_B

Churrasco: The traditional Gaucho barbecue, is a generic name for various cuts of meat made from cattle or. sheep. These meats are flavoured with thick salt and cooked on charcoal fire. Initially eaten on farms, it has spread throughout the country to become the main menu in specialized restaurants - the churrascarias.

not that far

by pepples46

ca. 100km from Porto Alegre, via Novo Hamburgo, change the Bus, gong into Morro Reuter, pass Dois Irmaos and travelling up the Hills to Santa Maria do Herval, have you Lunch there among Countryfolks. and around 2-3km you find a quite undisturbed native Bushland with a little comfort..Camping at its best!

Farroupilha Park

by Julie_B

Also known as Redenção it is one of the biggest parks in the city and is located near the business center of the city. Inside the park there are many temples. The best day to visit the park is on Sunday, when it hosts a flea market (Brique da Redenção). Avoid the park during the night.

Santa Casa da Misericordia (Hospital of Mercy)

by Alless

Santa Casa de Misericordia Hospital is a major Hospital based in Porto Alegre. It is reference in Latin America for transplants and genetic research.It is a university hospital linked to the UFCSPA (Health Sciences Federal University of Porto Alegre).

The hospital of the Santa Casa de Misericórdia of Porto Alegre was founded in 1803, attending the needs of the province of São Pedro do Rio Grande do Sul, which didn't have a hospital at that time. The first nurseries were opened in 1826, giving medical and social assistance to slaves, the poor and criminals. With the end of slavery and the development of capitalism, there was a change in the Institution's aim, which moved from its role of providing social assistance to a more therapeutic role, aiming also at research and teaching. This constant search for improvement has made the Santa Casa da Misericórdia of Porto Alegre a pioneer in several fields of medicine.

The little chapel (Nosso Senhor dos Passos Church)was built inside the historical building of the Hospital of the Mercy, in Porto Alegre. Its date of foundation is not know, although a manuscript kept there suggests it dates from around 1814. Between 1909 and 1910 was largely reformed and turned into a neogothic building. Its high altar shows an old statue of Our Lord. The chapel was restored in 2004.
