The Street of Congostas (pt: Rua das Congostas) was a street in Porto, parish of São Nicolau.

In 1875, a municipal project was approved to rebuilt the area and the street was incorporated in what is now the Street of Mouzinho da Silveira. This profile aims to map the street and organise profiles of people who resided there.



The name congosta means a long and narrow street.[1] Rua das Congostas can then be translated as Street of the Narrow Paths, which was a fitting name, considering the geography of the street.
