Matosinhos

Traditionally a land of fishermen, Matosinhos is currently much more than that: it is a rejuvenated and forward-looking city that knows how to welcome the visitors. It has one of the largest merchandise entry ports, the Leixões Port, to which the new Cruise Terminal, ready to receive tourists, has joined. Its gastronomy benefits from its proximity to the sea, with the municipality being known as the “dining room” of the Oporto district, with a well-known focus on fish and seafood. Don't forget to take a dip in its wide sandy beaches or to visit the seafood canning factories, where you can buy cans with vintage packaging, a great souvenir from your vacation. Contemporary architecture is one of the great bets of the city, highlighting the works of the local and worldwide architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, such as the “Piscina das Marés” and the “Casa de Chá da Boa Nova”.
