  Viana do Castelo
by micas_pt

Viana do Castelo is a city full of history and majestic houses that came from the, once, flourishing commerce. This is a city by the River Lima and the sea, therefore the maritime commerce and sea activities such as fishing have played an important role in its economic activities and history.

For visiting take a stroll through the beautiful city centre and go up to Santa Luzia hill (5km off Viana do Castelo city centre) where you can visit an amazing Basilica (inspired in Sacré Coeur) and enjoy the magnificent views over the city and its surroundings, including the ocean.
