It will be a late night of talking about racing around Vila Real, in an emblematic area of Oporto, which curiously is also the property of a descendent of Vila Real, so please join the tradition of the great gatherings of the coffee houses, enjoy the spirit of competition by those who lived it and which has been recounted in the book which is about to be released.
