Beautiful at dawn. A lot of people, activity and attractions. A must go once here I would say. Very frightening right after that. We were there and there was a crowd of policemen around which was strange per se. When the night came there was...More

This once-an-industrial venue is simply spectacular! Well locate at the end (or beginning) of the jogging stretch along the Guaiba Lake, this trendy handcraft place is also a point for the inclusive queer culture of the city. Saturday and Sundays are super busy, when they...More

The Usina do Gasometro is an icon of Porto Alegre. The main reason is because it's pretty well located. However, the cultural center is poor and there is nothing special around.
