My name is Olga and I was born and raised in this beautiful city, Porto.I grew up in Massarelos, a parish by the Douro river, and I know all the alleys, the stories and history, the expressions, existences, contrasts and dynamics of my Porto… After all I grew up playing hide and seek in the Crystal Palace - that I affectionately called my park of magic - and I can tell you that the best oranges I ever ate were snapped off Casa Tait's gardens!
More than a child from Porto, I am now a proud woman of this Porto.
