Memória (i)material da Praça do Infante, Porto
Carla Maria Braz Martins Paula Barreira Abranches
AbstractThis paper intends to present the historical and archaeological background of the Praça do Infante, located in the parish of S. Nicolau, Porto, based on elements provided by the construction of an underground car park. This square is part of the urban area of Porto’s historical zone, in which the coordination of the works of geophysical prospecting with archaeological ones was considered relevant. Thus, the former determined the location of the archaeological surveys, which, once completed, revealed a settlement sequence going from the 17th century to the 20th century, despite material remains dating back to Roman times. Today, this square is a mere flicker of the commercial and human bustle which the material memories cannot glorify. Keywords: Archaeological surveys; urban space; Early Modern/Modern times; Porto.
