The School of Architecture is located on the Via Panoramica road, just south of Rua do Campo Alegre in Porto. This is not far from the Ponte da Arrabida bridge, between the old city center and the ocean. From here, it is just under 2km to both the Office of Alvaro Siza and the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art.
If driving from the river, go up Rua de D.Pedro V, turn left on Rua do Campo Alegre, and look for a sign pointing to ‘Teatro Campo Alegre’. Turn left on this road, which will descend towards the river, pass under a bridge and turn left into the campus. Buses 35, 36, 37 and 78 travel along Rua do Campo Alegre. A site showing detailed bus routes and schedules is at www.stcp.pt.
An excellent interactive map of the city, where it is possible to search by street name is at www.cm-porto.pt/. Click on ‘Mapa da Cidade do Porto’ usually in the right-hand column of the page.
