Viana do Castelo/Portugal

Introducing Viana do Castelo

The jewel of the Costa Verde, Viana do Castelo is blessed with both an appealing medieval centre and lovely beaches just outside the city. The old quarters showcase leafy, 19th-century boulevards and narrow lanes crowded with Manueline manors and rococo palaces. The town’s setting just by the Rio Lima estuary means that Viana do Castelo is only a short hop from some excellent beaches, and also makes it a handy base for exploring the lower Lima valley and the nearby Serra d'Arga mountain.
