Capital of Alto Minho, queen of folklore and of a colourful set of traditions, Viana do Castelo is, in itself, a true tourist attraction. The earth’s greenness and the blue ocean paint the municipality’s natural image, which harmoniously embraces culture and modernity, especially the Sá de Miranda Theatre, the Cultural Centre and its various museums. Viana also possesses a celestial gastronomy, with its codfish and the 1001 ways to cook it, the Viana sweet roll and the “Santas Luzias”; as well as an exclusive handcraft, In particular the “Vianesa” costume and the embroidery – both certified – and the famous Viana's chinaware. A fountain of diverse religious inspirations, events such as the festivals of Nossa Senhora d’Agonia (Our Lady of Agony) or places like Santa Luzia, are grand expressions of Viana do Castelo's valuable cultural treasures. A municipality that once visited will never be forgotten!
