  • It was originally a jewellery, and then it was bought by a Spanish businessman who wrote his name on the main façade. The construction is thought to have begun in 1914, when documents refer to the supply of the iron for the front of the shop (deventure) by the Porto foundry Companhia Aliança. Clearly inspired by the Nouveau Art movement are the interior and the façade of the shop. The façade displays large curved frames on cast iron covering the front. These iron frames, originally golden, are decorated with shells, flowers and leaves, elements enrolled with the Nouveau Art vocabulary. On top, the name of the shop - Vicent. I tis now a clothing shop.
