You can’t visit the north of Portugal without visiting Viana do Castelo. Viana is known for its culture, the architecture, the filigree gold work and for the stunning location, just by the sea.
Viana do Castelo is located 77km north of Porto. You’ll need around 50 minutes to get there by the A28 highway. Trains and buses are also available.
You are in the “Mecca of the Contemporary Architecture” of Portugal, so you can’t skip the Praça da Liberdade (designed by Fernando Távora), the City’s Library (by Siza Vieira, the same award-winning architect that designed the Pavilhao of Portugal in Parque das Naçoes), the Youth Hostel (by Carrilho da Graça) or the City’s Cultural Centre (designed by Souto Moura).
