written by Gabriella Opaz | 21st September 2016

Chadner Navarro recently published a fantastic article in Bloomberg highlighting why Porto is surpassing Paris as “the” shopping capital of Europe. There’s a good reason for it. Porto isn’t just an architectural wonder, with its technicolored tiles and vaulting domes, it’s a hotbed of creativity! Just hang out at a party for a few minutes and you’re bound to run...

The initial beer movement began in the northeastern region of Catalunya, but eventually made its...
