Description

OPORTO - The city that moves in time.

The reference to Oporto city, on a sardine, which reflects all the peculiarities of the north of Portugal.

The combination of a city full of history, in contrast with the modernity; the mixture of the new and industrialist art.
A tribute to the city that snatches hearts!

The Douro river, the excitement of the markets, the tiles and D. Luís bridge ...

OPorto in all its glory portrayed on a sardine!

The sardines are made with high quality colors and decals, which allows them to have a very strong, intense and beautifull glow and color.
All the decorating process in each sardine is manual. The decoration is performed by decal process, which takes on average 10 minutes, producing only a few per day.

Each Bordallian sardine is wrapped in a original packaging to simulate a sheet of newspaper, in a throwback to the tradition of the sale of this fish in Lisbon, dating back to the XVIII century, between typical selling sayings, from the fishmongers.
