Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I present another interesting street in a beautiful ancient city in northern Portugal, I hope you like it, then some letters over the city.

At about 50 kilometers from the Spanish border in the north of Portugal, is Viana do Castelo, beautiful town located between the mouth of the river and Porto.

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

There is a hospital ship, the Eanes, recalling the storms bank of Newfoundland, and a historic town full of crests that recalls 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 Barrio Antigo, with cobbled streets leading from square to square and street to street, approaching palaces and churches. With sun always better traveling, 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. It should also see the neo-Byzantine Basilica of Santa Luzia and the Municipal Museum.
