The street to the right of Carmo Church leads to Praça Carlos Alberto, a square surrounded by elegant buildings. One of those is Teatro Carlos Alberto (or simply "TeCA"), a theater that hosts regular cultural events.
In the center of the square is a monument to the heroes of the Great War (1914-1918).
This square then leads to Rua de Cedofeita, which is one of Porto's most characteristic streets. It has been pedestrianized, and is covered with the traditional Portuguese cobblestone pavement. It's lined with shops but retains a residential atmosphere.
Turn left to Rua Miguel Bombarda, and you'll find a quiet residential street that is home to several art galleries and CCB (Centro Comercial Bombarda), a shopping center of art and design shops.
