The medieval city of Viana do Castelo lies in the Minho region on the northeastern coast of Portugal. This ancient land is the birthplace of the country, and history resonates through every picturesque place. Here the country’s colourful folklore comes to life in costume, music and festivities, and time-honored tradition transcends generations.
