Póvoa de Varzim

It is on Póvoa de Varzim beaches that the region's subsistence has always resided. In the past, fishing and sargassum harvesting were essential to the local economy, but from the 19th century onwards, these beaches became even more relevant, with the creation of beach tourism. Take the opportunity to take a long walk along the lively waterfront and stop on a terrace overlooking the sea. Let yourself be enchanted by the handicraft, where the "Camisola Poveira" has a prominent place. Discover a unique type of agriculture in the world, which is currently at risk of extinction: the "masseira" fields and taste the wine resulting from this artisanal technique. In gastronomy, the specialties are Hake à Poveira, Sardine Rice and Fish Stew. For dessert, try the French toast and the sweet pasta.
