Beaches in the Northwest coast of Portugal
Our trip begins at Viana do Castelo, a city by the sea that offers contrasted scenery by the sea with its golden sandy beaches, by Santa Luzia hill that draws the horizon and by the Lima River offering a breath-taking landscape.
The city, itself, is like a living museum, with countless monuments and mansions of different periods and styles. There we visit not only the monuments and other buildings, but also a local bakery where you can enjoy the reputed «Bolas de Berlim», a fried sweet pastry filled with custard cream and also a privately owned museum that displays pieces of gold filigree.
After visiting the city, our journey continues by visiting some other beaches and small towns nearby (Cabedelo, Afife, Esposende, Vila do Conde) towards the city of Oporto.
The journey includes a meal in one of the restaurants along the coastline and transports.
I live in Oporto but I used to live in Guimarães and other cities of the North of Portugal. I’m passionate about my country especially about the North. I propose to guide you through some of the most emblematic places in the North namely Oporto, the beaches in the North and also Guimarães (World Heritage). Let me show how people can fall in love, like I did, by this region of Portugal. What I propose is to see and embrace Portugal through my eyes. I’ve created 4 itineraries but I’d be more than welcome to create a tailor-made trip that suits better your expectations. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
