Experiencing Interruptions?


Located downtown at the city of Oporto, the Café Majestic, built almost 100 years ago, is presented in this movie as a place that excels in the choice of its products, the cooking, and costumer service. The movie presents to the viewer a Café rightfully established by its tradition, and the ideal place for a chat, usually frequented by tourists, locals, and some of the town's most prominent artistic and cultural personalities, who appreciate its unique environment and its luxurious architectural style. The goal of this movie is to promote the Café Majestic online, on several web pages and social networks. Considering its main audience are foreign tourists, it became logical to present the space through a video comprised with the best images and services of such a trademark building in the city of Oporto.
