Casa Diocesana - Seminário de Vilar

ICCMR 2013 will be held at "Casa Diocesana - Seminário de Vilar". This house dates back to the XIX century as a monastery of the "Visitação de Santa Maria" congregation. With the Implantation of the Republic in Portugal and the further laicization of the state, the nuns left the house in the 1920's, being then converted in a catholic seminary by the new owner, Porto Diocese. In 1989, the building was deeply transformed and enlarged for a guest-house of the Diocese of Porto, offering 117 twin comfortable rooms. It was also equipped with the necessary technology to support all kind of scientific and non-scientific events. It is located on the top of a hill with a fantastic view to the Douro river and very near of the "Palácio de Cristal", an ex-libris of Porto.

Adress: Rua Arcediago Van Zeller 50, 4050-621 Porto (see location in the map).
