Portugal Off The Beaten Path: 322 reviews and 400 photos
Viana Do Castelo is a small seaside town in northen Portugal situated between Porto and the spanish border.
It was the town that had most of the trade with Brazil when that was a part of the portugse empire and there are still many traces of that.
The town lost importance when Brazil declared independance and french pirates also looted the town several times and it lost it´s importance.
It is a wonderful little town though and very popular with portugese holiday makers and you should certainly make a stop there if you have the chance.
