For the eighth consecutive year Gabba organizes the best New Year’s event at Porto. After the success of previous editions at ‘Mosteiro São Bento da Vitória’, ‘Alfândega do Porto’ welcomes Porto Réveillon. An exquisite place full of history, culture and fun. Like no other place in the country.
The event receives people from several portuguese cities and tourists from all four corners of the world.
Alfândega do Porto is located at the historic center with Douro River as scenery. The building has a neoclassical typology, built with some lines of anglo-palladian in the 19th century, by project of engineer Jean F. G. Colson.Presented by two fronts, one turn to Douro River and another to the town.
The structural solutions used iron in combination with other materials – stone, brick or wood – depending on the functionality of the different spaces. In 1987 it was decided to install the Museum of Transport and Communications in the building of the future.
The Museum of Transports and Communications Association (A.M.T.C in portuguesa) also manages Congress Center, distributed for several spaces of Alfândega do Porto building.
As in previous years the event presents innovative, surprising and magical performances. The music is in charge of the best national DJs. Throughout the night we will pass the 80´s & 90’s tracks, brazilian sounds, world music, classic and comercial house. Porto Réveillon presents itself as the biggest and most exquisite new year’s eve in the city, full of ‘magical’, fun and ‘glamorous’ moments.
