Porto, or ‘Oporto’ is the second largest city in Portugal and one of the Iberian Peninsula’s major urban areas. Declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1996 due to its rich history and plethora of outstanding historic buildings and monuments, it went on to be declared the European Culture Capital in 2001 spurning the construction of a new major concert hall space and exponential growth in the arts.

In medieval times there was no concept of privacy with large groups of people living, working and sleeping in the ‘great hall’ of a house. Only the lord and lady of the house lived in the upper floor – known as ‘the chamber’ but this was by no means private as it also accommodated family, friends and servants as well as business activities.
