The city of Porto in Portugal, is to create a cadastre of its historical buildings, after a fire destroyed the natal building of famous poet Almeida Garrett. The historical city of Porto is a UNESCO world heritage site since 1996, but many of its oldest buildings are in dire state and lack basic amenities, such as proper electrical installations.

The cadastre is to map all buildings in the area and list their features, their cultural value and their conservational status.
