We are proud to announce that the 10th editon of Agile Portugal will be held at the Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto (ISEP), in the beautiful city of Porto, Portugal.
ISEP is a engineering school from the Polytechnic Institute of Porto, full of history yet very innovative and closely connected with the enterprise market.
It is said that the name ‘Portugal’ has its roots in the name of the city ‘Porto’, which dates back from Roman times. Overlooking the Douro River, Porto is Portugal’s second largest city, one of the most ancient European cities, classified as World-Heritage by UNESCO.
Beyond its welcoming environment and the world-famous “Vinho do Porto” (Port wine), Porto’s historical centre and landscape combines harmony with the urban structure, and presents a frame of rare beauty.
If you’d like to stay near ISEP, then you can choose between Eurostars Oporto and Ibis Porto São João hotels. Otherwise, you can check here a wide variety of Hotels, Inns and Hostels that better suite your purposes.
Porto is rich and diverse in gastronomy highlights. From the quick snack to a full-blown meal, there are numerous “places of replenishment and pasture”, where one can try all the local delicacies.
The two most typical local dishes are: Francesinha and “Tripas à Moda do Porto”. This last one is considered the traditional food of the city. Historically, the locals became often known as “tripeiros” or tripe eaters.
This mall is located 500 meters from the conference site, where you can find several (from “fast” to “less fast”) food parlours, restaurants and coffee shops. It is next to the Ibis Hotel and the IPO Metro Station. Very handy when at FEUP.
Besides the several Shopping Centers (see map below), there are a many areas in the city where you can find several eating options. Due to its location and diversity of offer we recommend Ribeira and Cais de Gaia.
On the Porto side of the river Douro, also know as “Ribeira” there are several restaurants often recommended by “tourism guides” where you can try out all the typical local dishes.
On the Gaia side of the river Douro, and along the bank, there is an assortment of several typical restaurants from “haute cuisine” to typical local food establishment, overlooking the river and “hiding” the Port Wine Cellars behind them.
There is always a stream of cultural events throughout the year. Please see the agenda for the full details.
