The street was named in honor of Bernardo de Nogueira de Figueiredo, a prominent figure of the Liberal Wars, especially the episode of the Siege of Porto.
Began to be opened in 1836, through land belonging to the priests Gathered aroundabandoned.
The intention of the municipality, to rip this new artery, was to establish a rapid and direct link between the then Square D. Peter Street and Bonjardim. Construction beganin 1836 but only seven years later (1843) have begun to build houses and the first thatrose were those who stayed with the back facing the Viela Congregados.
Eleven years later they turned to the South, because the councilman Elisio de Melodecided to extend the part of Bonjardim Street, between the new Rua de Sá da Bandeira and then called Rua de Santo António.
Once the work was renewed this section considered as a continuation of Rua de Sá da Bandeira and embedded in it and the part that linked Street Bonjardim Square wasgiven the name Bruno Sampaio. The year was 1916. They began the works for the opening of the Avenue of the Aliados.
