Torel 1884

"Through waters never sailed before".



February, 2019. We commit this date to memory as the one which brought to Porto an unforgettable journey. Torel 1884 – Suites & Apartments opened its doors at the city’s heart and invites all who visit it to get on board of a trip through Asia, Africa and South America. You must be wondering how is this possible, in the same space, to be able to experience so many different things. Yes, it might sound weird, but we can assure it is true.





The group Torel Boutiques arrived at the North of Portugal, more precisely at Porto, in 2017, the year in which it launched the brand’s first luxury housing in the city, Torel Avantgarde. Two years later, it was brought to life an “old dream” when the doors of an enthralling mansion of the 19th century were opened, a building that was the group’s first love – “it was the first building which I fell for when I visited Porto”, recalls Ingrid Koeck, a partner of Torel Boutiques. Who now walks by Rua Mouzinho da Silveira cannot miss the majestic entrance of number 228, where stand out the large vases with plants, the stone staircase, the world maps hanging in the ceiling and the heads of João Pedro Rodrigues artistic installation, which was inspired by The Lusiads’ muses.
