Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer you a view of this unique home in a beautiful ancient city in northern Portugal, I hope you like it, then some letters on the city.

About 50 kilometers from the Spanish border in northern Portugal, is Viana do Castelo, beautiful village located between the mouth of the river and Oporto.

Viana do Castelo is situated on the estuary of Limia, a river which rises in Galicia and the Atlantic will die. So when the traveler overlooking the sea has the feeling of being at a river, but when you see the big ships moored knows from there departed cod fishermen.

There is a hospital ship, the Eanes, which commemorates the storms the bank of Newfoundland, and a historic town full of crests that remembers better times, when money came to Portugal from the colonies. Great houses of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Best of Viana do Castelo is the Antigo Area, with cobbled streets leading from place to place and from street to street, approaching palaces and churches. With sun always travels better, but there cityscapes seem to ask a little rain to highlight the reflections of the stone.

The Republic Square is the heart of the historic center, where are the Town Hall, Mercy Hospital and a source of 1553 are also in place with Romanesque collegiate and several baroque churches. Should also see the neo-Byzantine Basilica of Santa Luzia and the Municipal Museum.
