Espiga – para alguns agricultura, pão, milho e desfolhada, para outros uma estrela binária. Para nós Espiga é Espaço de Imaginação, Gosto e Artes – uma galeria | bar, com um espaço multidisciplinar onde é possível comer, beber e relaxar.
The wonderful Espiga is just in front of Jardim do Carregal in downtown Porto, just a few minutes’ walk from Cordoaria and the main entrance of Santo António Hospital. There are both public and private parking spaces in the area if you are driving. If you take public transport the nearest metro station is Aliados, about 10 minutes’ walk.
