Gondomar

If jewelry, namely filigree, is the hallmark of the municipality, the Douro River is its main attraction. The Gondomar seafront is a true viewpoint, with terraces, walkways, marinas, river beaches and other sports and leisure facilities. It has a very rich architectural heritage, with emphasis on churches and manor houses. A must-visit are also the Multiusos de Gondomar, a fine example of contemporary architecture signed by Siza Vieira, and the Lugar do Escolha, which brings together the work of the painter Júlio Resende. Twice a year, there are two more reasons to visit: in October, the procession of Nossa Senhora do Rosário (or Festa das Nozes), and, between February and April, shad and lamprey, ex-libris of Gondomar's gastronomy.
