Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues , this photo today I invite you to stroll through a beautiful ancient city in northern Portugal , I hope you like it , then a few letters of the city.

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

Viana do Castelo is located 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 boats docked there they know that since cod fishermen .

There is a hospital ship , the Eanes , which commemorates the tempests of the Grand Banks , and full historic crests reminiscent of 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. There are also in place with Romanesque collegiate and several baroque churches. Should see also neo-Byzantine basilica of Santa Luzia and the Municipal Museum.
