DISCOVER OUR EXECUTIVE DELUXE MARCEL DUCHAMP:

 

In our Torel Avantgarde, our boutique hotel overlooking the Douro, in the center of Porto, we represent this artist with dark colors, which represent the feeling of 'shock' that many of his works conveyed.

In this Executive Superior, one of our rooms with two balconies, with a double or twin bed, we represent the use of common objects in his art, through the wheels of a bicycle as decoration on the wall, thus demonstrating how Marcel highlighted everyday objects.
