Arqueossítio da Rua de D. Hugo
It is located at number 5 Rua de Dom Hugo, near the Cathedral of Porto. The original house was Gothic but was destroyed. It has, however, taken advantage of its original walls for the construction of a new building. In the 1980 excavations were made that uncovered traces of a much earlier occupation dating from the fourth century BC to the present. Here were identified traces of proto-historic fort that gave rise to the city as well as Roman and late-mediaeval its successor.
Since 1993, it has been the seat of the Northern Region Division of the Order of Architects.
