Visit Viana do Castelo in 2024

Nestled at the mouth of the Lima River in Northern Portugal, Viana do Castelo captivates visitors with its scenic beauty, cultural heritage, and inviting atmosphere. One of the first things that catch the eye is the Sanctuary of Santa Luzia, a basilica that sits atop a hill and provides a bird's-eye view of the city and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
This charming city serves as a gateway to the Minho region, famous for its lush landscapes, folklore, and vinho verde wines. Viana do Castelo itself is known for its maritime history, which is evident in the Museu do Traje and the age-old shipyards that still operate today. The city also plays host to various festivals, including the Feast of Nossa Senhora da Agonia, a vibrant celebration that incorporates traditional dance, music, and costumes.
Beach lovers will find solace in the nearby Praia do Cabedelo, a golden-sand beach perfect for sunbathing, surfing, and sailing. Gourmet aficionados, on the other hand, will be delighted by the city's culinary offerings, ranging from fresh seafood to traditional Portuguese pastries.
