Araujo & Sobrinho
Founded by Manuel Francisco de Araujo in 1829, Araujo & Sobrinho first started as a paper warehouse and is now one of the oldest stationery companies in the world. And it is certainly the oldest in Porto`s city. The store, located in the historical center, is a cultural and architectural legacy, as shown by the façade of its building, with a unique panel in tiles; inside the store, a wide range of museum artefacts (e.g. statue of Santa Catarina das Flores), art and typography, demonstrate the longevity and diversity of this business that has been in the same family for five generations.
