Eat and Drink in Viana do Castelo

Viana do Castelo, located by the riverside of Lima River, in the north of Portugal, is a city which has a lot to offer due to its overwhelming Medieval appearance and gorgeous beaches by the suburbs. Its ancient neighbourhoods are sheer elegance, with leafy 19th century avenues and narrow streets full of Manueline mansions and Rococo palaces. This town is also very lively, its traditional festivals being celebrated with great style. College students also help to improve the environment of the festivals by filling up the bars, pubs and nightclubs.

Every harbour town on the Norte region’s coast has its own ways of preparing fish and seafood. In Viana do Castelo there’s pescada à Vianense, which is cod, hake or other whitefish seasoned with lemon juice and garlic, then baked with sliced potatoes and garnished with sautéed garlic and onions. The Minho Province here in the far northwest of the country is the birthplace of caldo verde, the famous Portuguese vegetable soup made with kale and potatoes. It’s a fine vegetarian option but can also come with cured meats like chouriço, linguiça or paio.
