Araújo & Sobrinho
The history of Araújo & Sobrinho is assumed and markedly present in the entire building of Porto A.S. 1829 Hotel. Each floor takes us on a journey back in time, the same journey started by the family almost 200 years ago.
The shop & Galeria do Largo
This floor marks the beginning of the history of Araújo & Sobrinho. The reception retains original furniture from the estate, on its right you can see what is now Papelaria Aráujo & Sobrinho, with the exhibition of some objects from the estate on the horse’s furniture. On your left, is the Galeria do Largo Restaurant, formerly an Art Gallery, albeit in a very limited time frame.
Floor 1 - 1829 until 1920
The stationery and tourism
Here are the first images of Papelaria’s interior and exterior and its founders. There are also some original postcards by Araújo & Sobrinho from some of the city’s tourist attractions.
Floor 2 - 1920 until 1935
From paper to carpentry
This floor is marked by the expansion of facilities with the opening of its own typography, relief work, bookbinding and carpentry workshops.
